Along with Ladies Love Outlawsreleased later inand Lonesome, On'ry and Mean released early the following yearGood Hearted Woman was responsible for transforming Jennings' image into that of one of the representatives of the outlaw country movement. The LP contains a slew of songs written by like-minded songwriters such as Willie NelsonTony Joe White and Kris Kristoffersonwhose compositions were pushing the boundaries of the conservative country music establishment.

Jennings, who had been frustrated by the assembly line production at RCA for years, became a leading force in what was being called "progressive country" music. In the audio version of his autobiography Waylonthe singer recalls his frustration: "I would think of ideas and before I got a chance to put 'em down - or even hear if they even worked - they'd tell me I was wrong.

I'd say, 'What the fuck ya mean, it's wrong? We don't understand that rhythm.

We have to smooth it out or we'll never get played on radio. In his autobiography, Jennings, who had developed a chip on his shoulder regarding producers, admitted to badgering the young producer during the sessions: "Ronny was young, one of the nicest people in the world, and didn't deserve the misery I put him through. I got more freedom with him as a producer, although I was still using musicians who didn't know what I was about. The album's most famous song is the title trackwhich has since become a country classic.

Inwhile staying at the Fort Worther Motel in Fort Worth, Texas[3] Jennings was inspired to start writing the song when he saw advertising on a newspaper promoting Tina Turner as a "good hearted woman loving a two-timing man", a reference to Ike Turner.

While they kept playing, they expanded the lyrics as Nelson's wife Connie Koepke was writing them down. In the authorized Jennings video biography Renegade Outlaw LegendNelson admits, "I think he had most of that song written.

We were in a poker game and he said, 'Hey, I'm writin' a song,' so we laid out of the poker game for a few hands. I think I gave him a line or two and wound up with half the song. And Waylon even suggested the line that Willie is supposed to have written.

It was Waylon's line and Willie said, 'Hey, I like that. I don't want to make Willie mad at me, but Waylon already had that song written. The original liner notes were written by Willie Nelson and describe the first time Jennings and Nelson met in Phoenix, Arizona.

Nelson's back cover liner notes were not included. The album peaked at 7 on the Billboard country albums chart. AllMusic : "In sum, Good Hearted Woman is a pretty sensational outing for Jennings; he's feeling his power here, and as the door opened just one more crack, the listener can hear how it never closed again.
