Shooter Jennings, singer-songwriter, is teaming up with his father's legendary band for the very first time. “This is the first collaboration between Shooter and the band, and it may be the last,” a press release states. “You don’t want to miss this historic event!”
Waymore’s Outlaws backed Waylon Jennings both live and in the studio. The younger Jennings has carried on his father’s outlaw tradition by releasing a series of genre-defying albums that keep him well outside the confines of the traditional music business model. He has never before played with the musicians who worked with his famous father.
Alt-country performer Shooter Jennings likes to keep listeners off balance. His two most recent recordings have paid homage to honky-tonker George Jones and to movie soundtrack guru and disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder, respectively. Jennings has also recently released a slew of musical projects, both new and retrospective, such as ‘The Other Live,’ his sophomore live album, which he recorded over the summer and fall of 2013. The project brings together tracks spanning his entire career.
This first-ever tour will give many fans of that rough and raucous Waylon Jennings' musical style a rebirth through Shooter, whose mother is country singer Jessi Colter. Here’s a chance to hear the son represent sounds of the father.
