Shooter Jennings (from the album Shooter available on Low Country Records)
The songs of Shooter Jennings have been so comfortable dipping their feet in both Country and Rock’n’Roll that a label for the music has never been in an issue. With his recent release, Shooter, he stays the course with stories showcasing characters that keep in the game no matter how the odds stack against them, putting a church basement piano under the city boy Blues in “Shades & Hue” as Shooter Jennings becomes a sixteen behind the wheel in a memory, late night cruising Mulholland bidding goodbye to lost friends and family in “Fast Horses and Good Hideout”. Shooter poses a musical question with “Do You Love Texas” as the album shows bad decisions come alive in “I’m Wild and My Woman is Crazy”, puts a slinky beat under a red light song with “Denim and Diamonds”, and toasts the relationship between bad break-ups and alcohol in “D.R.U.N.K.”.
His intention was clear when Shooter Jennings entered RCA’s Studio A in Nashville with producer/friend Dave Cobb and though taking chances is the norm on albums, the goal on Shooter was to make a really good country music record. The man who put his name in the title tears out some personal pages for the songs on Shooter, letting memories meander on the slow sway of “Living in a Minor Key” and popping the top on a honky tonk Soul show with “Bound to Git Down”.
