Shooter Jennings, ‘Wild and Lonesome’ – Video Premiere
The music video for Shooter Jennings‘ new single ‘Wild and Lonesome’ continues along the dark and mysterious path taken by the feature film inspired by his latest album. Jennings’ song — from ‘The Other Life’ album — is a straight-forward country tune, but the video casts the guitar-slinger on the wrong end of a shotgun.
This clip is the next-to-last installment of the accompanying film, out Sept. 1 on limited edition purple VHS. To begin, Jennings wakes up in the road as a long, black Cadillac pulls up. A man in a wolf mask drags the singer into the backseat as a sinister-looking teen watches. The car drives through downtown Nashville before the group ends up in a cemetery.
From there … well, you’ll have to watch to see how this story ends for the singer. The storyline for the feature film describes Jennings as finding himself on a dark trip from family man to gunslinger. It’s part grim fable, part psychedelic vision quest, and fans get a taste of both in this music video.
