SHOOTER JENNINGS

For nearly two decades, Shooter Jennings has defied expectation while constantly expanding the parameters of country, rock ‘n’ roll, and beyond. The scion of American music royalty, he has affirmed his own place in histories still to come as a truly limitless artist whose ambitious experimentation spans myriad genres and creative platforms, from releasing seven solo LPs, countless EPs, and founding his own label and multimedia outlet, Black Country Rock, to hosting his “Shooter Jennings’ Electric Rodeo” on Sirius XM’s Outlaw Country channel, producing music by Jamey Johnson, Wanda Jackson, and his mom, Jessi Colter, and the creation of acclaimed BBS Door games (available via his own BCRGames.com).

JESSI COLTER

Jessi Colter is one of modern music's singular talents, a singer, songwriter, and entertainer whose influence continues to echo across musical genres.

An artist talented and versatile enough both to top the pop charts and to be part of the groundbreaking Wanted: The Outlaws album, she has assured a place in the history of both formats. With the release in 2003 of An Outlaw ...A Lady: The Very Best of Jessi Colter--which No Depression called «one of the more important and plain necessary releases of the year»-and the 2006 release of “Out of the Ashes” -her legacy has been showcased again both for those who were part of the magic as it happened and for a new generation.

Jessi Colter was born with the name Mirriam Johnson in Phoenix. (She adopted the stage name Jessi Colter after her great-great-great uncle who was in Jesse James' notorious outlaw gang.) Her mother became Sister Helen, an ordained Pentecostal minister, and Colter became the church pianist at age 11. As a teen, her musical talent impressed rockabilly guitar star Duane Eddy, who produced her 1961 single «Lonesome Road.» They married in 1963. He wrote and recorded an instrumental, «Mirriam», while she wrote some of his album tracks, as well as «No Sign of the Living» for Dottie West. In 1967, Eddy and Colter recorded a duet single, «Guitar on My Mind,» but divorced the following year. She married Waylon Jennings on Oct. 26, 1969, at her mother's church.

In 1975, Colter notched a sizable country and pop hit with the self-penned «I'm Not Lisa.» That was followed a year later by the success of Wanted! The Outlaws, a collaboration with Jennings, Willie Nelson and Tompall Glaser and the first Nashville album to sell a million copies. Her best-known duets with Jennings are «Suspicious Minds» and her soothing composition «Storms Never Last.»

Her re-emergence as a recording and concert artist, bodes well for the future of popular music when it can surely use someone of her vision, originality, and accomplishment.
