Shooter’s dad is one of the all-time greats, Waylon Jennings (already featured here for Music Monday). Remember those good old days? War? Protest? Going to jail?
Out today: Shooter by Shooter Jennings.
Shooter may be country music royalty, but he has put in the work and gone his own way musically. Shooter made some really killer Southern Rock early in his career. He has yet to make anything that has supplanted Gone to Carolina in my heart. But the new album is openly inspired by Hank Williams, Jr., Bocephus himself. I have high hopes for this one.
Check out a few songs off the album on YouTube (Denim & Diamonds is by far my favorite of these three):
Fast Horses & Good Hideouts
Denim & Diamonds
You can order Shooter from Amazon.
