I added 4 guitar tracks and a voice track to this one.. The original duet was made famous by Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter.
Waylon Jennings was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Jennings began playing guitar at 8 and began performing at 12 on radio. His first band was The Texas Longhorns. Jennings worked as a D.J. in his early days. In 1958, Buddy Holly arranged Jennings's first recording session and hired him to play bass. In Clear Lake, Iowa, Jennings gave up his seat on the ill-fated flight that crashed and killed Holly, J. P. Richardson, and others. The day of the flight was later known as The Day the Music Died. Jennings then worked as a D.J. in Coolidge, Arizona, and Phoenix. He formed a rockabilly club band, The Waylors. During the 1970s, Jennings joined the Outlaw movement. He released a number of acclaimed albums and in 1976 he released other albums. By the early 1980s, Jennings was struggling with a cocaine addiction, which he quit in 1984. Later he joined the country group The Highwaymen with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash. He toured less after 1997, to spend more time with his family. Between 1999 and 2001, his appearances were limited by health problems. On February 13, 2002, Jennings died from complications of diabetes.
Mirriam Johnson, known professionally as Jessi Colter, is an American country music artist who is best known for her collaboration with her husband, country singer and songwriter Waylon Jennings, and for her 1975 country-pop crossover hit "I'm Not Lisa". Colter was one of the few female artists to emerge from the mid-1970s "outlaw country" movement. After meeting Jennings, Colter pursued a career in country music, releasing her first studio LP in 1970, A Country Star Is Born. Five years later, Colter signed with Capitol Records and released her first solo single, "I'm Not Lisa", which topped the country charts and reached the top five on the pop charts. In 1976 she was featured on the collaboration LP Wanted: The Outlaws, which became an RIAA-certified Platinum album.
