Shooter Jennings has joined Concord’s label group as a staff producer. In this new relationship, Jennings will work closely with Concord’s Chief Label Executive Tom Whalley as a creative executive to develop the current roster, identify new talent, and continue Concord’s tradition of making world-class music for Fantasy Records, Fearless Records, Loma Vista Recordings and Rounder Records.
Jennings kicked off 2020 with a Best Country Album Grammy win for co-producing (with Brandi Carlile) Tanya Tucker’s While I’m Livin’ on Fantasy Records, which was Tucker’s 25th album and her first Grammy. His work on Marilyn Manson’s recently released We Are Chaos (Loma Vista) received media attention around the world and marked the culmination of a year and a half of late-night writing and recording sessions. The sought-after producer also partnered with longtime friend/Fantasy Records artist Lukas Nelson to cut a song originally recorded by their fathers Willie and Waylon, “Mamma’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” which was used as the theme song for the Netflix series The Ranch. Jennings also sat behind the board for Concord Music Publishing songwriter and Guns N’ Roses’ bassist Duff McKagan’s third solo album Tenderness.
“I am excited to welcome Shooter to the Concord creative team,” said Whalley. “His ability to work with a variety of artists is a perfect fit for our labels and their talented rosters. I look forward to not only working with Shooter, but witnessing the impact his creative passion will have on bringing high quality recordings to the world.”
“To have the opportunity to join this [Concord] family is really a dream come true,” said Jennings. “I now find myself with so many more opportunities and resources to make the impact on music I have always dreamed of. Right off the bat, I am grateful for this. I am now looking forward to all the ways I can apply myself and my abilities alongside this great, global team to make great music and keep the world of music that grabbed me at such a young age growing, healthy, youthful, experimental and wild so that it might snatch up another generation of kids like me. I couldn’t be happier with the folks I’m surrounded by, and I’m lit up with excitement for all the work we’re going to be able to do together.”
