Shooter Jennings performs in WFYI's Small Studio.

He calls himself an outlaw rocker, yet country music is in his blood. Shooter Jennings is the son of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. He has several solo albums, but says his true passion is creating projects for other performers. He won a Grammy this year for producing Brandi Carlile’s latest record.

Jennings is our September Small Studio Session performer. WFYI’s Jill Ditmire sat down with him to talk about the role of country music in his life and his most recent work producing a record for Tanya Tucker.
