“Fast Horses and Good Hideouts” sees Jennings and Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) sharing songwriting credit with actor Randy Quaid. Cobb also helped produce the upcoming album as well.

“Randy and I had been corresponding for a while,” Jennings says of working with actor Randy Quaid. “I was trying to get him and his wife on my radio show, but nothing ever came of it. Then I asked him about one of the YouTube videos they made of him reading out of the Bible, I wanted to play it on the Christmas episode. He wrote back, saying I’d fulfilled this lifelong dream of his to read the Gospel on the radio, and he signed it, ‘Here’s to fast horses and good hideouts.’ I thought, that would make a great song! So then I went and wrote it.”

As the son of country legend Waylon Jennings, Shooter has made a name for himself since 2005’s Put The “O” Back in Country. Since then, the singer has released nine studio albums and has seen success with hit singles such as “4th of July,” “Gone To Carolina,” “Some Rowdy Women,” and a cover of the Dire Straits classic “Walk Of Life.” Over his career, Jennings has also worked with numerous artists such as Billy Ray Cyrus, Jessi Colter, and Jamey Johnson.
