Shooter Jennings

Shooter Jennings is one of the few country artists around today who I can listen to.  Son of country legend Waylon Jennings, Shooter portrayed his father in “Walk the Line”.   He infuses rock and roll into his songwriting which gives some songs a Lynyrd Skynyrd type flavour. 

An example of this can be found in his song “Fourth of July“.  Although this song is from his 2005 release “Put the “O” Back in Country” it is in my opinion probably one of the catchiest and well written country songs to come out in recent memory.
