After last year's superb Family Man, Shooter Jennings returns with a record that's pegged to a feature film. According to his website, he plays a man on a "supernatural journey forcing him to face a darkness that has followed him longer than he can understand and a destiny that he cannot deny." Heavy.

Kacey Musgraves - 'Same Trailer Different Park' (March 19)
