Cody Jasper may wear boots covered with Texas soil, but his rock ’n’
roll passions stretch way beyond its boundaries, influenced by
characters named Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Otis Redding, Sam
Cooke and Waylon Jennings. In fact, Jasper’s love for Waylon led him
directly to Waylon’s son, who showed him how to graft outlaw country
together with rock and turn it into audio dynamite. “If it wasn’t for
Shooter’s music,” Jasper says, “I would still be trying to decide if I
was country or rock ’n’ roll.” Fortunately, he doesn’t have to.
