Son of a rebel saint
Shooter Jennings has worn many hats throughout his career: the self-described “son of a rebel saint,” the hell-raising vigilante minister at a revival of true country music, the radical prophet using rock and roll as his medium, the guiding light for an ever-growing army of young musicians who are, like Shooter himself, outsiders in today’s music business. Now after a career where he has done everything from sharing the stage with Alice in Chains to writing songs for the Oak Ridge Boys, Shooter will finally reveal the man at the heart of it all on March 13th when he releases Family Man on Entertainment One Nashville.
As the title suggests, Family Man is Shooter’s most personal and introspective album to date, focusing on his home life with fiancee Drea de Matteo and their two children, the endless temptations of life on the road, his Southern heritage and upbringing, and his unique position among today’s country musicians.
Shooter relies heavily on his own experiences throughout the album and as a result many of the songs are autobiographical in nature, whether he’s addressing critics on “The Family Tree,” paying tribute to his roots on the hard-rocking “Southern Family Anthem” (“We may be trash, but we’re a family,” he sings), or diving into deeply personal territory with heartfelt ballads like “Daddy’s Hands,” a song which was inspired by an illness in his fiancee’s family last year.
