Jessi Colter was a major figure in country music in the '70s and early '80s, scoring a number of country and pop hits, including "I'm Not Lisa."
She was also a crucial part of the Outlaw Country movement that included husband Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and David Allan Coe. In the mid-'80s, however, she stopped recording and focused on raising her son, Shooter Jennings, and helping him launch his career. 20 years later, Out of the Ashes is her triumphant return to recording.
After being encouraged by friend Ben Harper to return to music, she has delivered a deeply personal stellar collection of originals and hand-picked covers that mixes country, blues, gospel and rock. Producer Don Was (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan), assembled a strong backing band-with Don himself on bass, Colter stalwart Reggie Young on guitar, and a guest appearance by Shooter-to lay Jessi's vision down on tape.
As a special bonus, he and Jessi completed an unreleased song from the late '80s that features vocals by Tony Joe White and Waylon Jennings.
