"With all the changing seasons of my life
Maybe I'll get it right next time"
Williefest, Birthday Edition continues with another oral history about Willie and all the outlaw country boys, from April 2012.
“Good Hearted Woman” is a song written by country music singers Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. In 1969, Jennings and Nelson were staying in a motel in Fort Worth, Texas. Jennings was inspired to write the song after reading an advertising that promoted Ike and Tina Turner. Jennings joined Nelson on a poker game and told him about the idea, the singers completed the song while Nelson’s wife, Connie Koepke, wrote it down. (x)

“Waylon was telling a joke, and I wish I could remember the joke, but it was about Salman Rushdie,” [Jim] McGuire says. “Those guys were wild and crazy, and they were having a lot of fun. That photo session lasted about 10 minutes: They were in the recording studio, and that’s all the time we had. And we got two Highwaymen album covers out of that session.”
