Shooter Jennings and his band, Hierophant have announced a string of tour dates with Alice In Chains, kicking off April 6 in Fayetteville, Ark., and ending April 28 in Chattanooga, Tenn. Shooter and his band will also be performing at Coachella in Indio, Calif., on April 17.

Shooter is touring in support of his genre-bending new album, 'Black Ribbons,' which was given 3.5 stars by PEOPLE Magazine, and compared to Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails by the Los Angeles Times.

"Brilliant ... one wild, paranoid, anti-establishment mash-up of psychedelic theater," the Los Angeles Daily News declares.

"I wanted to make a different kind of record -- a new adventure," says Shooter. "I know some folks may be surprised at how different this record is compared to my previous works, but I'm sure once they dig in, they'll find something that speaks to them. After all, it's the twisted road that matters, not the destination."

Fellow country music outlaw, Jamey Johnson agrees.

"Thank God Shooter Jennings is stubborn enough to be his own man," Jamey tells the Washington Post. "There are so few people left that even have that audacity these days."

On March 25, fans can be a part of a special program called 'The Drop,' being held at the Grammy Museum in LA, where Shooter will discuss the inspiration behind his latest album, take questions from the audience and sign copies of the new CD. Tickets can be purchased at the Museum Box Office, by calling 213-745-3000, or by visiting www.grammymuseum.org.

Shooter hosts 'Shooter Jenning's Electric Rodeo' on Sirius/XM's Outlaw Country channel Saturday night, from 6 - 8 PM ET.
