The offspring of music legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter will be in Texoma next week. Waylon Albright Jennings, better known as Shooter Jennings, will be the next performer on the Heritage Park stage for the Music on Main summer concert series in Denison.
The concert will be held at 7 p.m. Friday in Denison.
“I feel comfortable in my own skin writing about the things that I like because I know that there are other people out there that understand what I’m talking about,” Shooter Jennings said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “I love hanging out with [those fans]. I can talk to them about the most nerdy stuff.”
Shooter Jennings’ debut album, “Put the ‘O’ Back in Country” reached no. 1 on the U.S. Heat charts and in total, he has released 16 studio albums, compilations, and extended play CDs since 2005.
“Shooter is a connector,” Dave Cobb said in an interview about Shooter Jennings’ album “Shooter.” “When we did Put the ‘O’ Back in Country, country music was in a different place, and that record opened the floodgates for artists to make a record that is different.”
Some of Shooter Jennings’ most famous songs include “4th of July,” “Gone to Carolina,” “The Deed and the Dollar,” and “The Magic.”
Shooter Jennings has also made television and film appearances. In the 2005 movie “Walk the Line,” he even took on the role of his father Waylon Jennings. Shooter Jennings has also appeared as himself in “American Revolutions: The Highwayman,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” and “Marvel’s The Punisher.”
“The biggest misconception my whole life is that I’m rich, that I had all this money from my dad, which I did not,” Shooter Jennings said to Rolling Stone. “There were so many times during these years between labels where we couldn’t afford to tour. We weren’t making enough money at a show to sustain a bus and the band. And that’s when Jon had the idea of doing the Waymore’s tour.”
The next Music on Main performer will be Cordovas, who will perform on June 28.
