Storms Never Last
It is heartwarming to watch this performance with An Outlaw and a Lady, Waylon Jennings and his wife, Jessi Colter in this final duet performed in January 2000 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Itwould not be his last concert (that came the following year in KansasCity), but it was sort of a grand celebration, a final hurrah, a finalduet, played out before a hugely appreciative audience in this mostfamous country music auditorium.
This Earl Grant best love song titled "The End" was a #7 song in 1958 and 60 years later it is sad the song still does not appear on any best love song lists currently viewed online. Another beautiful classic ballad from the fifties you never hear played on the radio.
Storms never last do they babyBad times all pass with the windsYour hand in mine stills the thunderYou make the sun want to shineOh, I have followed you down so many roads babyI picked wild flowers and sung you soft sad songsAnd every road we took God knows our search was for the truthAnd the storm brewing now won't be the lastStorms never last do they babyBad times all pass with the windsYour hand in mine stills the thunderYou make the sun want to shineStorms never last do they babyBad times all pass with the windsYour hand in mine stills the thunderYou make the sun want to shineYes you make the sun want to shine
"Storms never last, do they baby / Bad times all pass with the winds / Your hand in mine steal the thunder / You make the sun want to shine," Lambert sings wistfully. She's accompanied by Gwen Sebastian, who was also worked extensively with Shelton after competing on Team Blake on The Voice. Musically Lambert's arrangement is a bit more up-tempo than the original track, but even the most adamant country traditionalist won't be able to find fault with the performance, which is shot through with pedal steel and an overall classic country feel. Check it out in the video above.
Lambert seems to be weathering her own very public storms this year with grace. After winning Female Vocalist of the Year at the CMA Awards in November, she admitted, "I really needed a bright spot this year."
Laura Pouttu was her own "beacon of light" through her dark and stormy childhood filled with disappointment, challenges, and tragedy. Also suffering from server epileptic seizures and brain injury problems, the odds were stacked against her. This is the encouraging and inspirational story of how one woman refused to give up, and even through great adversity, was able to achieve her dreams and goals. This is a journey in life enduring storms and tribulations and ending with dreams coming true!
The second single was nevertheless a huge country/pop success and later that year, Colter launched a nationwide tour as part of Waylon Jennings' program at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. In 1976 Colter released her second and third Capitol studio albums, Jessi and Diamond in the Rough. Both albums were as successful as Colter's 1975 album, both debuting at No. 4 on the Top Country Albums chart. The lead single from her Jessi album, "It's Morning (And I Still Love You)" was a Top 15 country hit in 1976 on the country charts. Her second album that year, Diamond in the Rough produced only one charting single, "I Thought I Heard You Calling My Name". At this point, Colter had established herself as a big-selling "albums artist," rather than a casual honky-tonk hitmaker, given that her talents were far more inclined to soul-rock than to mundane country music. For the remainder of the decade, Colter toured with her husband, Waylon Jennings, and released her studio album Mirriam in 1977. She then released her next album, That's the Way a Cowboy Rocks and Rolls the following year. Her success began to decline through the remainder of the decade, with her final two albums of the decade not producing any Top 40 country hits.
In 1981, Colter and her husband returned to release a duet album entitled Leather and Lace. The album's first single, "Storms Never Last," was written by Colter, and the second single, "The Wild Side of Life"/"It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels," was also a major hit in 1981, peaking at No. 10 on the Billboard Country Chart. The album was certified Gold in sales by the RIAA that year, Colter's second RIAA-certified album to date. Stevie Nicks wrote the title track of the album; however, after receiving word that Colter and Jennings might divorce, Nicks released her own version of the song as a duet with Don Henley. It peaked at No. 6 on Pop chart, also in 1981. Also in 1981 Colter released her final studio album on Capitol records, Ridin' Shotgun, which also spawned Colter's last charting single on the country charts, "Holdin' On". 041b061a72
