Singer, songwriter, and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Shooter Jennings has announced he will join legendary Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan on the North American tour in support of his forthcoming solo album ‘Tenderness.’ Jennings, who produced the album, and his band will serve as both direct support and McKagan’s backing band on the tour, which kicks off on May 30, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA and wraps on June 16, 2019 in Seattle, WA. Tickets for all shows are available starting today HERE. Prior to the tour, McKagan and Jennings will deliver a special performance at GRAMMY® Museum in Los Angeles, CA on April 4, 2019.
McKagan and Jennings began recording ‘Tenderness’ one year ago this month, working out of Station House Studios in Echo Park, CA. The album features Jennings and his band – Aubrey Richmond (fiddle, vocals), John Schreffler (guitar, pedal steel, vocals), and Jamie Douglass (drums) – along with appearances by The Waters and The Suicide Horn Section (which features Duff’s brother Matt McKagan on trombone), amongst others. ‘Tenderness’ is due for release on May 31, 2019 and tracks Tenderness and Chip Away are available now.
Prior to joining McKagan in the studio, Jennings collaborated with longtime friend and Low Country Sound founder Dave Cobb to co-produce Brandi Carlile’s critically acclaimed sixth studio album ‘By the Way, I Forgive You.’ Jennings was honoured with his first GRAMMY® Award for Best Americana Album for his work on project, which received a total of six nominations and three awards. Carlile and Jennings recently reunited in the studio to co-produce country legend Tanya Tucker’s forthcoming album, ‘While I’m Living.’ Marilyn Manson also revealed he was working on a new album with Jennings in a recent Instagram post.
Jennings released his eighth studio album ‘Shooter’ via Low Country Sound / Elektra Records on August 10, 2018, produced by Dave Cobb at the renowned RCA Studio A on Nashville’s Music Row. Following the release of ‘Shooter,’ Jennings delivered a rousing performance of Bound Ta Git Down on CONAN and appeared on influential podcasts WTF with Marc Maron and The Joe Rogan Experience. ‘Shooter’ is available now HERE.
Jennings is currently on the road for a run of headline and festival dates. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
