Shooter Jennings Covers George Jones


Shooter Jennings grew up in a traditional family.

If a traditional family means your dad is country music icon, Waylon Jennings and George Jones was hanging around your house as a kid all the time. Growing up on his dad’s tour bus, Jennings has been around good music his entire life and now he’s paying homage to that up-bringing with his EP Don’t Wait Up (For George).

Jennings’ debut album Put the “O” Back in Country featured a song with the legendary Jones and now, Jennings has released three Jones covers and two originals about the Possum.

The tracks are very influenced by 1980s and well, George Jones. The result was magical.
