As the child of country legends Jessi Colter and Waylon Jennings, Shooter Jennings might as well have been born on the sawdust floor of a honky tonk. After spending a few years in a little-known hard rock band, Shooter took up the family business and began releasing solid albums of guitar-heavy country in the tradition of his folks. Though Jennings is clearly in touch with country music's past, he is also very much a product of his own time. This gives his music a scruffy alternative vibe that aligns him with contemporaries such as Ryan Adams, Bobby Bare Jr., and the Drive-By Truckers. Jennings played his father in the 2006 film WALK THE LINE.
