As the progeny of country music royalty--his dad is the legendary Waylon Jennings; his mom, '70s hit maker Jessi Colter--it's no big surprise that Shooter Jennings has spent the last couple of decades making sure everyone knows he has interests far beyond twang. He moved to Los Angeles, formed a rock band, played his dad in a movie, collaborated with author Stephen King, dabbled in spoken word and released a tribute album to electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder. He made country music and roots-rock along the way, too, most notably his 2005 debut, Put the "O" Back in Country, produced by a young Dave Cobb, who is now the most in-demand producer in Nashville, thanks to his work on records by Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton.
