2013 release from the singer, songwriter and son of Country outlaw Waylon Jennings. The Other Life sees Shooter using all the colors of the pallets of previous recordings, and bringing them together to make his most diverse and interesting album to date.

He enlists the help of friends and icons alike, Austin Texas madman Scott H. Biram shares vocal duties on the Steve Young penned 'The White Trash Song', Patty Griffin blesses 'Wild And Lonesome' and Black Oak Arkansas' Jim Dandy preaches alongside Shooter in the Black Oak Arkansas lost gem '15 Million Light-Years Away'. But it is with the closing 'The Gunslinger' that we see a portrait of a man hell bent on making art his way no matter who may try and get in the way.

Shooter Jennings does what he wants, so this record is country/rock/Americana and amazing. I listened to it like five times in a row as soon as I got it. There are some definite flashes of Waylon influence on here as well. I love "The Low Road", about doing what you have to do because sometimes the high road is closed;

"Outlaw You" is a direct shot at manufactured country acts who 'couldn't hit country with a baseball bat', 'name-dropping Johnny Cash' (who could that be? ;-) ); equally amazing is "Wild & Lonesome" with Patty Griffin.

There is even some kind of trip-hop with "The Flying Saucer Song". "The Gunslinger" has an old-school Skynyrd/Waylon feel to it, but is kind of Kid Rock edgy with the spoken word delivery. Shooter is everyman, but unique at the same time.
