Country rocker Shooter Jennings and his band The Triple Crown will headline the Tybee Island Pirate Festival on Oct. 12.
Jennings is the son of country music legend Waylon Jennings. The younger Jennings released his first album in 2005. His most recent album, "The Other Life," came out in March.
Pirate Fest is in its ninth year and features three days of live music and activities in Tybee's South Beach parking lots. Other music acts will include tribute bands Departure (Journey) and A1A (Jimmy Buffett).
Jennings is the latest big name artist to play Pirate Fest. Vince Neil of Motley Crue fame headlined the 2012 event, and Eddie Money played in 2010.
