2018 release. Backwoods bravado, patriot's pride, country soul, keg-thumping beats - these are the qualities that Moonshine Bandits have championed since they began burning up the California club circuit back in 2003. Long before people figured out country and rap had a lot in common, the Moonshine Bandits released their genre-blending album, "Whiskey & Women" and took the world of outlaw music by storm. Their message spread as they rolled from the West Coast through the heartland, the dirty South and beyond on their tour bus. No matter what color their collar was or even if they wore a collar at all, people heard something of their story in their music - and popped back a cold one to celebrate that connection. Plenty of their trademark sound and message resonates through their music - reverence for God and country, a celebration of divebars, and Saturday nights - but also depth that encourages reflection, even hints of doubt. None of this compromises the defiant pride that's always threaded through the songs of Bird and Tex, aka Moonshine Bandits. The groups blue-collar work ethic and unwavering persistence has led to over 60 million views on youtube, numberous accolades including three #1 achievements with their 2017 release "Baptized in Bourbon," a 2018 Telly Award for their "Take this Job" music video featuring David Allen Coe, and a rabid fanbase that attends their live shows at venues all across the United States.
