Like his hell-raising dad, Shooter Jennings
prefers his country with a shot of badass. Waylon Jennings was one of country music's outlaw pioneers a tough-talking, rough-living singer who gave Nashville the finger whenever he got the chance. Shooter, too, takes aim at Music City. On his debut album, Put the O Back in Country
, he mixed rowdy barnburners with alt-country reflection. His latest CD, Shooter Jennings and the .357's Live at Irving Plaza 4.18.06
, captures a particularly sweaty concert during a tour stop for his second album, Electric Rodeo
. Jennings who played his dad in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line
really kicks up shit onstage.
