It’s Country Time! The 100 Best Country Songs Ever Made

#100 Good Hearted Woman – Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson

There is nothing better than a country song written with an inspirational story. This is exactly what is going on with “Good Hearted Woman.” It was actually at the Fort Worther Motel where the inspiration for this track came. While playing a poker game, Jennings persuaded Nelson to record the song.
