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.

This time out, though, Jennings puts aside the eclecticism he is known for, deciding instead ...
CD review - Don't Wait Up (For George) Let's get one thing straight right off the bat. This is not a tribute album. For one thing there are only five songs on it. But it's not a tribute EP either. 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. ...
