Watch Shooter Jennings' latest installment of his hilarious promotional series featuring a performance of his single "D.R.U.N.K."


And the hits just keep on coming! Country crooner Shooter Jennings continues to release promotional videos for his upcoming album Shooter, which will be available August 10. The hilarious series features Jennings swapping jokes with his famous pals (Elle King??) and doing what he does best, play country music.


In this latest installment, the country star performs his rockabilly single, "D.R.U.N.K.,“ which he co-wrote with songwriter Aaron Raitiere. In an interview with Billboard, Jennings describes writing “D.R.U.N.K.” as a surprising experience, due to the fact that he’s rarely had a successful co-writing session in the past. "That one came about when I was producing the Brandi Carlile record (By The Way, I Forgive You) with Dave Cobb,” says Jennings. “Dave was doing another project on the weekends with this guy named Aaron Raitiere, who is a writer. I had never really had a successful co-writing session. I never really sat down with someone – especially someone I didn’t know – and completed a song that I liked. Aaron has this office that he shared with Anderson East above RCA Studio A, and Dave said ‘Why don’t you go hang out with him and see what happens?'”

While the “Denim & Diamonds” singer is the first to admit the concept of the song isn’t new, he and Raitiere were able to come up with an original spin to give it that signature ‘Shooter’ flare. "It’s got some funny lines, but it’s a serious situation – to some degree – taken with levity. We wrote the song in about an hour. We really hit it off quick. He’s a really good guy.”
