Biography

The only son of country legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Shooter Jennings literally spent his childhood on a tour bus. Born Waylon Albright Jennings, Shooter was playing drums by the time he was five years old and had already begun taking piano lessons, only to break them off and follow his own path to an understanding of the instrument. He discovered guitar at 14 and rock & roll ... Read more in Amazon's Shooter Jennings Store

Editorial Reviews

Make no mistake about it, Shooter Jennings has never been one to allow expectations, boundaries, genre or ideals dictate the direction of his art. From the moment he burst onto the scene, it was clear that he had a style and a vision all his own that would separate him from the leagues of cookie-cutter artists out there.

During the recording sessions for Shooter s previous release, Family Man, as in life, things began to shift and change and The Other Life began to take form. Over the duration of 2012, Shooter and The Triple Crown finished work on The Other Life, and Shooter and long time video-collaborator Blake Judd began planning an expansive film counterpart to the album. Shot across Tennessee, Kentucky, Nevada and California, The Other Life film paints a story of isolation, temptation and rebirth through visual storytelling. As an album, The Other Life sees Shooter using all the colors of the pallets of previous recordings, and bringing them together to make his most diverse and interesting album to date. He enlists the help of friends and icons alike, Austin Texas madman Scott H. Biram shares vocal duties on the Steve Young penned The White Trash Song, Patty Griffin blesses Wild and Lonesome and Black Oak Arkansas Jim Dandy preaches alongside Shooter in the Black Oak Arkansas lost gem 15 Million Light-Years Away. But it is with the closing The Gunslinger that we see a portrait of a man hell bent on making art his way no matter who may try and get in the way.

In 2012, Shooter also began work producing records for other artists. On March 12th, the same day as The Other Life s release, Lexington, KY dirt rock band Fifth on the Floor will release Ashes & Angels, the first of three records Shooter produced the previous year. Jason Boland s Dark and Dirty Mile will follow, as well as a yet-unnamed record with Reno s Hellbound Glory.

In the long run, in his short time here Shooter has been a very prolific and daring artist. Dangerous in his disregard for rules put upon him by the greedy. Deceptive in his unpredictability. Bound only by the progressive evolution of music and controlled only by will and determination, Shooter Jennings will never be able to placed upon a shelf or chained to a simple concept. But as dreams and nightmares continue to blossom and reality continues to crumble, there is comfort to be taken in the fact that artists like Shooter still care about art and disregard the rigid restrictions put upon it by corporate slave-drivers and the mainstream gatekeepers.

I never leave reviews, but this is special. I don't get much country rock music, but again this is special. Shooter has hit the mark with this work. Outlaw tribute to Waylon, Jim Dandy, great songs and what a vibe. You just don't hear this in 2013. This has soul and if you were ever a fighter I'll bet you will like this stuff!! Thanks

Shooter Jennings does what he wants, so this record is country/rock/Americana and amazing. I listened to it like five times in a row as soon as I got it. There are some definite flashes of Waylon influence on here as well. I love "The Low Road", about doing what you have to do because sometimes the high road is closed; "Outlaw You" is a direct shot at manufactured country acts who 'couldn't hit country with a baseball bat', 'name-dropping Johnny Cash' (who could that be? ;-) ); equally amazing is "Wild & Lonesome" with Patty Griffin. There is even some kind of trip-hop with "The Flying Saucer Song". "The Gunslinger" has an old-school Skynyrd/Waylon feel to it, but is kind of Kid Rock edgy with the spoken word delivery. Shooter is everyman, but unique at the same time. A great CD for just chilling out: sitting in the driveway and drinking some beers.

Great album. Everytime I get a new shooter recording I always think it can't be as good as the last one. He proves me wrong everytime. Awesome

The flying saucer, white trash, and the gun slinger songs are the best. Plus the CD art work is so cool.

First things first, this review will be bias. Shooter Jennings 6th album & 5th studio release is a genre busting piece of art. The term country rocker does not do Shooter justice. There is roots, country, Americana, rock, metal, blues, and jazz present on this album. Shooter is the most original recording artist on and scene today. Shooter makes the music he wants. He always has but since leaving his major label deal after 4 record releases he shocked fans and thrilled critics with "Black Ribbons" in 2010. A rock opus that stands the test the time to this day. Following "Black Ribbons" was 2012's "Family Man" album which some labeled a return to country when really it was Shooter introducing the public to stripped down roots country music.

Enter 2013's new release "ThenOther Life". When the opening track plays you may right away think you are getting ready to hear a Black Ribbons like album but that track is directly followed up by the upbeat country tune "The White Trash Song" which features Scott H. Birham. You then continue to go thru a ride of musical bliss with stand out tracks "The Outsider, "ThenOther Life", etc.

Then there is the closing track "The Gunslinger". My favorite Shooter songs are the ones drenched with emotion I.E. "All Of This(could have been yours)" from Black Ribbons. the Gunslinger is an angry Shooter Jennings writing a song from a dark place and revisiting that same place while laying down the vocals. No, I was not present when it was recorded but you can feel it in the vocal delivery.

I know I didn't go song by song in this review I more so wanted new listeners or fans to know what you get with a Shooter Jennings album.

I was excited about this release, and even more excited when it was available on the cheap. After buying it, I haven't stopped listening to it. I gave it 4 out of 5 because it's not as good as "Family Man"
