Waylon Albright "Shooter" Jennings, rolled into St. Louis on Saturday night, bringing with him a history of country music bigger than his own stature. Doors opened at 7 p.m. with opening acts setting the stage for Jennings' later performance.
A little bit of Texas heat found its way into the Old Rock House on an unseasonably cool St. Louis July night. Billy Joe Shaver, the original “Honky Tonk Hero,” took the stage, bringing his history, unique brand of song and storytelling to an audience of neo-urban cowboys, greasers, hipsters and anyone faithful to '70s outlaw country.
With a nod to greats like Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings before her, Nikki Lane proves with "All or Nothin'" that you don't need a Y chromosome to make rootsy, aggressive outlaw country.
