Waylon Albright "Shooter" Jennings (born May 19, 1979) is an American singer-songwriter formerly active in the country music and Southern rock genres before switching to hard rock in 2009. The only child of country singers Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Jennings signed his first recording contract, with Universal South Records, in 2005, releasing his debut album Put the "O" Back in Country that year. This album produced his only entry on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts in its lead-off single "Fourth of July", which peaked at #26. Jennings has since followed Put the "O" Back in Country with three more albums: Electric Rodeo, Live at Irving Plaza 4.18.06 (both 2006), and The Wolf (2007). In 2009, he formed a new band Hierophant and toured with them on the Warped Tour. They released their debut album Black Ribbons in 2010.
Shooter Jennings lived his first few years in a crib on his parents' tour bus. By age five, he was playing drums. Between tours, he took piano lessons. He started playing guitar at fourteen and sometimes played in his father's band. He and his father recorded a few things together when they happened to have some microphones set up and the tape recorder plugged in. At age sixteen, Jennings discovered rock music. Shooter graduated from University School of Nashville in 1997.
As an adult, Jennings left Nashville, Tennessee to seek his fortunes in Los Angeles. He assembled and performed with Stargunn, a southern rock band whose sound he described as Lynyrd Skynyrd mutating into Guns N' Roses. Stargunn performed at local clubs for six years, built an avid following, and earned praise from the local music press.
On March 30, 2003, Jennings dissolved Stargunn and moved to New York City to spend time with his girlfriend and sort out what he wanted to do next. An unexpected gig at the House of Blues a few weeks later revived his creativity. He returned to Los Angeles to form another band, the .357s. The .357s originally consisted of Bryan Keeling on drums, Ted Russell Kamp on bass and Leroy Powell on guitar (though Powell voluntarily left after recording "The Wolf" to concentrate on his solo career). The quartet recorded their first album "Put The O Back in Country" with Dave Cobb producing in 2004 and it was released in 2005.
Jennings portrayed his father in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. He is the host of Shooter Jennings' Electric Rodeo, a two-hour weekly music show on Sirius Satellite Radio's Outlaw Country channel. His second solo album Electric Rodeo was released on April 4, 2006, followed by The Wolf on October 23, 2007. This album was followed in 2009 by his first compilation album, Bad Magick: The Best of Shooter Jennings and the .357's.
In 2009 Jennings formed Hierophant with Bobby Emmett on keyboards, The Schreffman on lead guitar, with Ted Russell Kamp and Bryan Keeling holding down the rhythm section. Hierophant's first album, Black Ribbons, was released March 2, 2010. On May 1, 2010 Shooter Jennings announced "Black Ribbons: The Living Album" on his Twitter account. The "Living Album" includes the full studio record and live shows with Hierophant on a USB flash drive shaped like a tarot card.
 Personal life
He is engaged to Drea de Matteo, with whom he had a baby girl, Alabama Rose, on November 28, 2007.
