Hear It Here: Shooter Jennings & Friends (including Musgraves, Kristofferson, Benson & More) - "Do You Love Texas?"

Country renegade Shooter Jennings has called on many of his country peers to help Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s destructive 2017 landfall. He has released a new track called “Do You Love Texas?” which will raise funds for the Rebuild Texas Fund and features backing vocals from ace artists Kacey Musgraves, Kris Kristofferson, Randy Rogers, Jason Boland, Ray Benson, and Whiskey Myers.

The idea came about when Jennings, 38, was in the studio with Music City power producer Dave Cobb in the days before Harvey hit Houston. “Dave and I are like little kids in the studio. When nobody else is around we say goofy, kid things to each other. Some of our greatest collaborations came from ideas like that. Dave turned to me and said, ‘Hey man, Texas loves you. We need to write a song for Texas.’ I looked at Dave and sang, ‘Do you love Texas?’ And he said ‘Hell yeah!’ And I sang ‘So do I.’ And the rest of it fell right into place. We had a great time crafting a song that playfully talks about why Texas is so much damn fun.”
Ram Trucks donated the first $25,000 towards the cause in conjunction with the song's release.
