About Shooter Jennings
The only son of country legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Shooter Jennings literally spent his childhood on a tour bus. Shooter seemed destined for a career in music, and like his father, he established himself as an artist who played by his own rules from the start. Shooter's music was strongly informed by both hard rock and outlaw country, with 2006's Electric Rodeo emphasizing the guitars and 2007's The Wolf playing up his twangy side. With his project Hierophant, Jennings explored his interest in metal and electronic music, while 2016's Countach paid homage to a seemingly unlikely influence, Euro-disco icon Giorgio Moroder. And on 2022's Sometimes Y, a collaboration with Yelawolf, he and the rapper mixed up a variety of 1970s and '80s rock influences. Through it all, Shooter's gritty, passionate songwriting and vocals have remained a constant.
