Shooter

Shooter Jen­nings

Apple Magazine - - Summary -

Shooter is the eighth al­bum from Shooter Jen­nings. Jen­nings is the son of leather-and­lace coun­try cou­ple, Way­lon Jen­nings and Jessi Colter, but he hasn’t al­ways fol­lowed in his par­ents’ coun­try foot­steps, dab­bling in dystopian rock opera in 2010 with Black Rib­bons. How­ever, this new al­bum sees Jen­nings re­vert­ing to his coun­try and South­ern rock and roll roots.

FIVE FACTS:

1. In the first few years of his life, Shooter Jen­nings lived on his par­ents’ tour bus, sur­rounded by the likes of Wil­lie Nel­son and Johnny Cash.

2. Jen­nings signed his first record­ing con­tract in 2005 with Univer­sal South Records and re­leased his first al­bum, Put the “O” Back in Coun­try, that same year.

3. In the Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line, Jen­nings por­trays the role of his fa­ther.

4. For Shooter, Jen­nings is re­united with Grammy-win­ning pro­ducer Dave Cobb.

5. Jen­nings would love to work with ro­bots – he is de­ter­mined to record an al­bum with an an­i­ma­tronic band called the Rock-afire Ex­plo­sion, who are fronted by a key­board­play­ing go­rilla.
