Whey Jennings grew up in a family full of country music royalty.  His grandfather, the legendary Waylon Jennings and grandmother Jessi Colter both had major success in the major music charts for decades.
Whey Jennings is a "rough around the edges, unpolished singer" with a voice as big as Texas.  He couldn't go pop with a mouth full of crackers! 
Whey Aaron Jennings is the oldest son of his mother Katherine and father Terry Jennings.  Whey has always had a deep love for music since the first time he stepped foot on stage. 
Whey was just a boy at one of his grandpa Waylon's shows. His grandma Jessi had just left the stage after singing "Storms Never Last." Jessi left the stage and laid her microphone on a chair backstage. Young Whey picked up the microphone and pranced out onto the stage and began singing "Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys." Whey's grandpa Waylon shouted out "Hey hold up there for me!"  
Waylon went to pickin and when the song was finished the crowd went nuts. It was on that day that Whey fell in love with music and as the say... the rest is history.

***White Iron shows combine lyrical accessibility and explosive musicianship to produce a rich experience for the head, heart, and legs. Originally formed in Ely, MN, the heart of Minnesota’s northern Iron Range, by frontman Matt Pudas, keyboardist Eddie Juntunen,and guitarist Sammy Weyandt. Backed by a driving rhythm section with Jeff Underhill on drums and bass guitarist Matt Walvatne accompanied by the soulful blues undertones of Greg (Cheech) Hall on electric and slide guitar. The White Iron Band embodies the triumphs and struggles of the everyday man.
Their songs carry a tinge of the old cowboy legends canonized by the Highwaymen, with stories ranging from tales of love, pain, jail, work and whiskey. Now based in Minneapolis, the group has established a passionate and equally as rowdy fan-base throughout the Midwest and has traveled further to spread their unique mix of blues, country and Americana roots music. White Iron Band released their sixth studio album **** the Nighttime in December 2012 on both digital and LP formats. **** the Nighttime was produced and mastered by legendary Minnesota producer, singer/songwriter Rich Mattson recorded at Sparta Sound. This album captures White Iron’s grass roots, soul and a strong implementation of blues that would even make the renowned Highway Men proud. The White Iron Band has supported and shared the stage with such acts as David Allen Coe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, North Mississippi Allstars, Shooter Jennings, Gear Daddies, Trampled By Turtles and many more.
