SHOOTER JENNINGS ANNOUNCES “SHOOTER” AND PREMIERS NEW SONG
Low Country Sound and Elektra Records are proud to announce the eagerly awaited new LP from Shooter Jennings. SHOOTER arrives at all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, August 10th. Pre-orders are available here.
Heralded by Rolling Stone as one of 2018’s “30 Most Anticipated Albums,” SHOOTER is available for pre-order now at all DSPs and streaming services. All pre-orders are joined by an instant grat download of the project’s first single, “Fast Horses & Good Hideouts,” also available today for individual purchase at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. “Fast Horses & Good Hideouts” – which sees Jennings and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) sharing songwriting credit with iconoclastic character actor Randy Quaid – is debuting today at radio on SiriusXM Outlaw Country, home since 2005 of the hugely popular “Shooter Jennings’ Electric Rodeo” radio show.
In addition, the single is joined by a new companion visual, entitled “Hey Shooter!”. Available for viewing here.
“Fast Horses & Good Hideouts” is streaming now at the official Shooter Jennings YouTube channel following today’s exclusive video premiere via Rolling Stone Country.
“Randy and I had been corresponding for a while,” Jennings says of the song’s genesis. “I was trying to get him and his wife on my radio show, but nothing ever came of it. Then I asked him about one of the YouTube videos they made of him reading out of the Bible, I wanted to play it on the Christmas episode. He wrote back, saying I’d fulfilled this lifelong dream of his to read the Gospel on the radio, and he signed it, ‘Here’s to fast horses and good hideouts.’ I thought, that would make a great song! So then I went and wrote it.”
Jennings is marking the arrival of SHOOTER with a wide-ranging live schedule. “The Bound Ta Git Down Tour” includes headline shows, dates supporting Turnpike Troubadours, and event performances such as Brighton, CO’s Summerfest (June 2nd), Austin, TX’s Republic of Texas Biker Rally (June 8th), Kansas City, KS’s Tumbleweed (June 16th), Black Mountain, NC’s Jam In The Trees (August 25th), and Tahlequah, OK’s Medicine Stone Festival (October 22nd).
