See Shooter Jennings Tonight at The Bowery Ballroom

May 21st, 2013

Despite essentially growing up on a tour bus as the only child of outlaw-country royalty— Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter—and later becoming a professional musician, Shooter Jennings has been able to successfully make a name for himself since his debut album, the Southern-rock-and-country-hybrid Put the “O” Back in Country, came out in 2005. Since then, Jennings has remained busy touring and putting out new material. Plus he settled down with Drea De Matteo, of The Sopranos fame, had a kid and relocated to New York City, much of which is reflected in last year’s Family Man. However, his most recent album, The Other Life (stream it below), released this past March, covers some darker terrain. And tonight at The Bowery Ballroom, Shooter Jennings (above, doing “The Deed & the Dollar” for Music Fog) plays a hometown show. Don’t miss it.
