Supporting Acts: Uncle Lucius Shooter Jennings
From the moment he burst onto the scene with his debut album Put The O Back In Country it was clear that he had a style and a vision all his own that would separate him from the leagues of cookie-cutter artists out there. However, it was 2010 breakthough album Black Ribbons, in which we begin to see the real Shooter. Black Ribbons painted a grim picture of a government-controlled future stripped of its right to free speech and controlled by fear. In 2011, Shooter released Family Man, returning to his country songwriter roots and painting a deeply personal picture of his family life. During the recording sessions for Family Man, Shooter’s new release The Other Life began to take form. Over the duration of 2012, Shooter and his band The Triple Crown finished work on The Other Life, and Shooter and long time video-collaborator Blake Judd began planning an expansive film counterpart to the album. Shot across Tennessee, Kentucky, Nevada and California, The Other Life film paints a story of isolation, temptation and rebirth through visual storytelling. As an album, The Other Life sees Shooter using all the colors of the pallets of previous recordings, and bringing them together to make his most diverse and interesting album to date. He enlists the help of friends and icons alike, Austin Texas madman Scott H. Biram shares vocal duties on the Steve Young penned “The White Trash Song,” Patty Griffin blesses “Wild and Lonesome” and Black Oak Arkansas’ Jim Dandy preaches alongside Shooter in the Black Oak Arkansas lost gem “15 Million Light-Years Away.” In 2012, Shooter also produced three albums for other artists. Lexington, KY dirt rock band Fifth on the Floor will release Ashes & Angels, Jason Boland’s Dark and Dirty Mile will follow, as well as a yet-unnamed record with Reno’s Hellbound Glory. In addition to his music, Shooter has been a DJ on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country channel for seven years and counting, his show broadcasting Saturdays at 6pm EST and replaying Sunday and Thursday. In 2011 he also developed GiveMeMyXXX.com and MoonRunners.com, two resources to expose this type of music using his influence and platforms.
