CDS

Shooter Jennings, “The Wolf”: His dad was an outlaw and he’s a traditionalist, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a maverick streak in Shooter Jennings.

Son of Waylon Jennings, Shooter comes with hard rockin’ honky tonk like they haven’t made since his father was helping establish the paradigm for business-minded, blue collar country three decades ago.

His latest disc, “The Wolf,” is a boozy, nicotine-stained romp through seedy bars and bedrooms where once again Shooter’s aim proves to be dead on.

Also in stores: Gary Allan, “Living Hard”; Steven Curtis Chapman, “This Moment”; Coheed and Cambria, “No World for Tomorrow”; Dave Gahan, “Hourglass”; Heart, “Dreamboat Annie Live”; Juanes, “La vida … es un ratico”; Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, “Raising Sand”; Carrie Underwood, “Carnival Ride”; Ween, “La Cucaracha”; Dwight Yoakam, “Dwight Sings Buck”; Rob Zombie, “Zombie Live.”

BOOKS

“Out of Sync” by Lance Bass: The former boy band member writes in depth about his childhood, his experiences during the height of ‘N Sync and after the band’s dissolution, as well as his life as a gay man.
