Jessi Colter Plans New Album

Singer-songwriter Jessi Colter, Waylon Jennings’ widow, plans to record a solo album this year with producer Don Was. The Phoenix New Times newspaper reports that the project will veer toward a rock sound. Colter and son Shooter Jennings recently hosted a party and jam session attended by Metallica’s James Hetfield (who contributes a track to the upcoming I’ve Always Been Crazy: A Tribute to Waylon Jennings) and former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello (who is producing tracks for the younger Jennings’ band, Stargunn.) Colter resides near Phoenix. 1/10/03
