Shooter Jennings Covers Dire Straits’ “Walk of Life”

The first single from Shooter Jennings’ new CD, The Wolf, will be a cover of Dire Straits’ “Walk of Life.” “I’ve loved this song since I was a kid, but when I actually read the lyrics, I was fascinated by the line, ’he do the song about the sweet lovin’ woman, he do the song about the knife,’ because it’s a struggle that I can relate to as a musician,” Jennings said. “Hopefully this song will make people let their guards down, and it will open the door to the rest of the album. Then the more personal songs I wrote will speak for themselves.” The Wolf will be released on Oct. 23 on Universal South Records. “Walk of Life” will be released as a single on Sept. 17.
