Shooter Jennings

May 15, 2008

Visulite Theatre

The Deal: Son of Waylon Jennings showcases his outlaw style.

The Good: Jennings hit the stage and kicked off the show with a handful of his best songs — "This Ol Wheel" and "Gone to Carolina" among them. Jennings changed instruments for just about every song as he rifled through songs from all three albums. The night's highlight was a shredding, extended jam version of "Daddy's Farm" that capped off the encore.

The Bad: I was surprised that Jennings didn't play his cover of "Walk of Life." I expected a bigger crowd, not to say that the Visulite was empty by any means... I also expected bigger sing-alongs. Last time I caught Jennings, at a show in Winston-Salem, the place went nuts for "4th of July." This time, it seemed like most didn't know the words.

The Verdict: A great show of rock and country music.
