SHOOTER JENNINGS
PUT THE O BACK IN COUNTRY
BY MIKAEL WOOD

Shooter Jennings, the son of the late outlaw-country maverick Waylon Jennings, canít resist the pull of the anti-Nashville libertinism that propelled his father through a 40-year career. In "Solid Country Gold," from his debut, he brags that "I was born in Nashville but I left there long ago, ícause they built Music City by sacrificing soul." Fortunately, Shooterís blanket distrust of the C&W biz isnít rooted in the puritanical neo-conservatism that yields a new raft of lifeless alt-country albums every year; he just thinks stuff made in Nashville doesnít rock hard enough, or doesnít have enough dirty jokes. Heís wrong, of course, but who could decline a tune as winningly irreverent as "Busted in Baylor County," where Shooter and his band mates get stopped by a state trooper after "smokiní up that California gold," only to be released by a judge who levies a fine of "a few autographs for you to sign"?
