Shooter Jennings is cut from the the same outlaw cloth as his late father, Waylon Jennings, as evidenced by some of the outrageous answers he offered when taking our Valentine's Day-themed "POPsessions" questionnaire this month. But just like his dad (who was married to Shooter's mother, country singer Jessi Colter, for 33 years), Shooter has a romantic side. After all, he's so smitten with his recent bride, Misty Brooke Swain, that apparently all the newlyweds need is a meal at Del Taco to have the perfect dream date.

Shooter will be spending Valentine season playing a club residency every Wednesday in February at BCR Nights at LOADED in Hollywood, but he still took the time to fill out our lovey-dovey pop-culture Q&A. Read on, and feel the outlaw love!
