Doing it his way may be the best way to describe Shooter Jennings, who will play a pre-race concert at Kansas Speedway on May 9 before the SpongeBob SquarePants 400.
Jennings, who is the son of country music legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Coulter, has been around music his entire life, and has been following his own path in the music world for almost as long. Releasing his first album in 2005 (Put the O Back in Country), he released his latest album, The Other Life (a live album) last year from label Black Country Rock (BCR). And recently, Jennings has been out on his “Don’t Wait Up (For Shooter) Tour” with the Waymore Outlaws, Waylon Jennings original recording and touring band.
“I’m looking forward to having Shooter Jennings join us for our May 9 night race and adding to the excitement of an already great race day,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren. “Shooter has a unique sound and I know our fans will enjoy his concert.”
In addition to being a musician, Jennings is also a producer, composer, BCR president and radio host.
