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 provide both direct support and as backing band on the tour, kicking off on May 30, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA. The tour wraps on June 16, 2019 in Seattle, WA.
Tickets for all shows are available now, and can be purchased here. There will be a special performance by McKagan and Jennings at Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA on April, 2019 before the tour begins.
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), among others. Tenderness is due for release on May 31, 2019 and tracks “Tenderness” and “Chip Away” are available now.
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, Shooter was praised as “a rollocking self-titled LP that would’ve made dad Waylon proud” (Entertainment Weekly), “a God’s honest country-rock record” (Garden & Gun), and “a succinct but rowdy listen” (Rolling Stone). 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.
