Friday, December 21, 2007
– Shooter Jennings will kick off the new year with a series of network television appearances in support of his third studio album, "The Wolf," including a two-song performance on CBS's ratings CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Jan 10 at 9 p.m. Eastern.
"It's awesome for my music to be recognized and chosen by these music supervisors, who I'm sure had their pick of any country artist in Nashville," said Jennings.

Jennings has also been tapped to usher the Late Show with David Letterman back into production following the writers's strike on Jan. 2, 2008 with a performance of "This Ol Wheel."

The bulk of "The Other Life" was recorded during those ...
