Shooter Jennings Offers Free Music for the Holidays
Shooter Jennings isn't going to let the holiday season pass without offering you a gift. 'Missed The Boat: A Collection of Demos and Rarities' is all yours, courtesy of the country-rocker. And what should you give Shooter in return? Your name and email address will do just fine.
The free download album has more than 10 years of demos, remixes and live recordings spanning his career. 'Wake Up! (Pig Flu Mix) (2010)' is built around Shooter's raspy vocals, reminiscent of his dad, Waylon Jennings', accompanied only by keyboards, except for staccato bursts of sound effects including machine gunfire. Other songs such as 'For All Debts Public and Private (2008)' -- yes, that was a famous episode of The Sopranos, which starred Shooter's intended Drea De Matteo -- is more along the lines of Shooter's signature sound: wailing guitars punctuated with Keith Moon-wild drum beats.
All you have to do is go to Shooter's website, create an account, click the activation link, which will come in your email, then sign in to Shooter's website and download the album.
In other Shooter news, he and Drea are expecting their second child. The couple's daughter, Alabama Gypsyrose, turned three in November. Shooter and Drea have been together for nine years, and became engaged this past summer when the country music heir popped the question during a live show in 2009.
