Jessi Colter sang under a clear sky on a balmy spring evening as if it were the most natural thing in the world, notwithstanding the turbo-frost that slammed more northerly and easterly regions of the country. Of course she might have done that at Reid Park or a half-dozen other venues in town, but instead she performed at what is perhaps Tucson's second greatest tourist attraction next to the weather: The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

Predictably, the show's highlight was her own 1974 hit "I'm Not Lisa," although Colter has co-written and recorded many more tunes with country greats, including her husband Waylon Jennings. As her sweet, warbling country-drenched music filled the outdoor Warden Oasis Theater, families all over the grounds enjoyed an evening of "Desert Night Life," with special astronomy programs, story time, activities for the kids and education programs about the nocturnal lives of animals.
