An Outlaw and a Lady: A Memoir of Music, Life with Waylon, and the Faith That Brought Me Home will hit stores in April (17) and will centre on Colter's life before fame.

It will also focus on her difficult marriage to Jennings, his addiction battle and death in 2002 of complications from diabetes.

In addition to the memoir, Colter is currently working on a new album, according to Rolling Stone. She released her last record, Out of the Ashes, in 2006.
