No. 10: Waylon Jennings, ‘Good Hearted Woman’ (Feat. Willie Nelson) – Top 100 Country Songs
Listening to Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson come back in after the key change in ‘Good Hearted Woman’ is sure to send a shiver up your spine every time. Song No. 10 on the Top 100 Country Songs list is perhaps the greatest duet of all time. Strong arguments could be made for one of Jennings’ solo hits like ‘I’m a Ramblin’ Man,’ but not much of an argument can be made against this hit from 1975.
Jennings released a solo version of ‘Good Hearted Woman’ initially, but it was the duet with Nelson that peaked at No. 1. The song won the CMA for Single of the Year in 1976 and was even a minor pop hit. They’d perform this song many times together over the years, including the wonderful star-studded performance in the video below.
