The Real Me – Shooter Jennings
The Real Me is a catchy song. It’s something you can tap your foot too…well stomp your foot too and it’s got a sing song type of chorus. Shooter throws a song out there like this once in a while and like always the song packs a punch. There is always an edge with Shooter. He always seems to be proving a point or trying to make folks in the crowd uneasy. I can respect that.
This song is about a guy that tries his best to be a good father and husband. He’s working hard to earn that money and support. He’s there when his family needs im during the day, but for some reason when nighttime comes he turns into the real person he has always been. The Real Me is relevant to a lot of folks out there.
Have you ever sat back in your chair and wondered how your life has ended up? Do you think about how things could be different?
That’s how I interpret this song. It’s about the people out there that see their lives for what they are and are wondering if it’s really the real person they truly are deep inside. I think it’s a conflict many deal with and maybe there’s even a little loss of hope.
Shooter once again brings a different sound to the stage. He’s a one of a kind artist and I think he succeeds in making people uncomfortable with his music. It’s interesting and it’s good.
