Shooter Jennings makes Opry debut

Thursday, September 20, 2007 – Shooter Jennings will finally make his Grand Ole Opry debut on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

"One of the songs off my new album talks about the criticism I've always faced that my music is 'not country enough, too rock 'n roll,' so the invitation to play the Opry is a really significant milestone in my career," said Jennings. "I grew up in Nashville most of my life, but playing the Opry stage is really the true sign of acceptance there."

Jennings, the son of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, will release his fourth album, "The Wolf," on Oct. 23. Producer Dave Cobb once again partnered with Jennings in the studio.

"The Wolf" is an album about "independence and learning to accept yourself for who you are," Jennings said.

Only three of the five were ever recorded by Jones. Whatever you call it, this is the first of two recordings celebrating two very different musical icons. The second, due in January, will fete another George - Giorgio Moroder, an influential producer who worked with Donna Summer and paved the way for electronic dance music. ...
CD review - The Other Life After the first 30 seconds of "The Other Life," listeners may feel like they are in for "Black Ribbons Part 2." The reality is that like all of Jennings' previous albums, this one has a distinctive sound. He has forayed through Southern Rock, outlaw country and most recently released the straightforward country album "Family Man," which most effectively channeled his daddy's musical ghost. The bulk of "The Other Life" was recorded during those ...
