Editors’ Notes Shooter Jennings’ previous album, 2016’s Countach, was, rather improbably, a tribute to electronic pioneer Giorgio Moroder. For Shooter, the son of outlaw-country legend Waylon Jennings has returned to his roots, but not without the winking sense of humor that’s always been present in his work. For one, the record has a visual accompaniment in the form of a Hee Haw-style variety show, complete with cornpone one-liners and cameos from Elle King and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell. The music itself is throwback country at its finest, with barroom singalongs (“Do You Love Texas?”) and Hank-inspired ballads (“Rhinestone Eyes”) mingling with cheeky David Allan Coe-style drinking songs (“D.R.U.N.K.”). Oh, and “Fast Horses & Good Hideouts” was inspired by a correspondence with Randy Quaid. What more could you want?
