[edit] History
"I'm Not Lisa" has been said to be one of country music's greatest songs of all time.[citation needed] It was first recorded by Jessi Colter in 1975. Colter, the wife of country singer Waylon Jennings, was trying to establish her own career in country music. She wanted to go into the category of outlaw country music with her husband and other artists like Willie Nelson and Sammi Smith. She had recorded numerous duets with Jennings before writing any material on her own. "I'm Not Lisa" was one of the first songs she wrote the music to. The lyrics were written by a ghostwriter. Colter liked the song and decided to record it under her label Capitol Records. The song was then featured on her debuting 1975 album I'm Jessi Colter. The song soon was released as a single. "I'm Not Lisa" climbed the country charts that year and went directly to #1. "I'm Not Lisa" also achieved huge pop success. The song reached the Top 5 on the pop charts that year and made a Colter a household name.[citation needed] "I'm Not Lisa" became Colter's signature song.
"I'm Not Lisa" was one of the early crossover country songs by a female artist, and Colter's only crossover hit. Lynn Anderson, Skeeter Davis, and Patsy Cline would also achieve country-crossover success during the 1970s. "I'm Not Lisa" proved to be one of Colter's greatest achievements. Not only did she sing on the song, but Colter also played the keyboard in the recording. The song has also been classified as one of the greatest hits of the 1970s, reaching many '70s compilation albums.
