Album Review

Shooter Jennings is the son of the late Waylon. This is both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that because of his pedigree people will take the opportunity to check him out. The curse is that the comparison factor is inevitable and unfair. And since birthright is unavoidable here, we'll get this out of the way straight up: this is modern-day outlaw country music. This is rockin' country music. The title track goes a little far in terms of stressing its point — including getting George Jones to slur his way through some introductory words. The very next cut, "4th of July," contains the same kind of pumped-up guitar-slinging grittiness and glory that the original outlaws did. It's loud, and has a killer hook and near-chanted refrain. "Lonesome Blues" is pure Texas country — drawling, slow, full of pain and pathos. And so it goes. Jennings can write songs. The best of them, like the aforementioned "4th of July" is a quintessential Southern rocker; the acoustic "Sweet Savannah" and electric "The Letter" are fine busted love ballads that tell full-on stories, dig deep into country archetypes, and have fine choruses and hooks that are timeless. "Southern Comfort" sounds like a dead cross between Lynyrd Skynyrd's more laid-back moments and an outtake from Chris Whitley's Living with the Law, and features a backing chorus of Mom Jessi Colter, Faith Evans, and Cece White! In Jennings' singing voice there is the trace of his father's grain, but in his music he is unruly and fiercely independent; that's a compliment more than a comparison. This is a fine debut album. It has a miss here and there, but it's got soul and grit, and displays its creator's wealth of talent. Recommended. [The 2005 edition included one bonus track.]

Customer Reviews

questioning the meaning of an outlaw???

I bought this album with absolutely no preconceived notions. I was pleasantly surprised. It's not only a good country album, it's a good rock album! Just a side note to the guy who said that Shooter isn't an outlaw... because Toby Keith could beat him up. You're right and even though he may not make it as big as Mr. Keith, Shooter seems like he will stay true to his roots and not worry about top 40 hits. Also, if you look at the king of all outlaws, Willie Nelson, he's not a big scarey guy. An outlaw is someone who will buck the system at all costs. Think before you type son!

This is "Solid Country Gold"

If you like the Dixie Chicks, or Faith Hill, of Tim McGraw, this album isn't for you. If you like GNR and Skynyrd mixed with Hank and Waylon, pull up a stool. I first heard shooter on the Waylon Tribute album, when he was with Stargunn. Their "Ive always been crazy" is KILLER! This album has everything from Hard Rockin' "Daddy's Farm" to Ballads like "Sweet Savannah" and just good ol' rockin' country like "4th of July"and "Solid Country Gold." If you are a country fan that hates country radio, check this out!

The Guy last reveiw does not know anything about music.

I think this is a great album a true Country recording. Whould you trust a guy that bought a Jim Buffet album. I think not. This is real songs and has so much soul that it will get singing along and dancing. Remember when country music was fun well that is what it is, FUN! The guitar playing is well done and the prodution is awsome. So take a ride and enjoy Shooter rocken you out or sit back and have a beer.


Born: May 19, 1979

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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 (particularly Southern rock and the loose-limbed hard rock of Guns N' Roses) at 16. Soon he moved from Nashville...
