Shooter Jennings, son of country music legend Waylon Jennings, was born into the Nashville country music scene, but he has built a career with a creative sound that transcends traditional music generes. Shooter Jennings has always demanded to be taken on his own terms, and he moved to LA to build his own unique sound and style. Jennings made his debut with the single “4th Of July” of his 2005 album Put the “O” Back in Country, which peaked at No. 26 on the Billboard country charts. Jennings has since followed with five more albums, the most recent, The Other Life, released earlier this year.
So what is Shooter Jenning’s style? Is he country? Is he rock? Both? Neither? His influences include Hank Williams, Trent Reznor, and Led Zeppelin. However you try to define his sound, you’ll be sure to enjoy the twangy melodies and gifted song writing.
