MOONSHINE BANDITS' DELUXE ALBUM

Moonshine Bandits

MOONSHINE BANDITS' NEW ALBUM, CALICOUNTRY, IN STORES  
FEBRUARY 4, 2014


Nashville, TN, (December 10, 2013)... Los Banos, California outlaw rebels,  Moonshine Bandits, have set February 4th, 2014 as the release date for their brand new studio album, “Calicountry,” through Nashville-based Average Joes Entertainment and Burbank-based Suburban Noize Records. The group has also announced that they will premiere their new video for the song “California Country” online on Christmas day as a thank-you to their loyal fans, the Shiner Nation.
Moonshine Bandits' new album “Calicountry” was executive produced by country star Colt Ford and Average Joes’ CEO, Shannon Houchins. The album will feature guest appearances by The LACS, Colt Ford, Big B, Danny Boone from Rehab, Durwood Black, and American Idol finalist, Sarah Ross. From the thumping first single, “California Country,” to the party anthem, “Throwdown,” and the contagious, “We All Country,” the Moonshine Bandits brand of "Calicountry" will surely turn some heads.
“A lot of our music is hell-raising music,” states Moonshine Bandits' band member, Tex . “Our guitars are very loud and our bass is pretty heavy. It’s very much in-your-face kind of music that you can party down to. We’ve got a few songs on there that are a little more personal and a little bit slower but, for the most part, it’s very aggressive.”
“Calicountry” is now available for pre-order on iTunes at  http://smarturl.it/CaliCountryiTunes where fans can instantly download two brand new songs, "Arrest Me" and "California Country." Moonshine Bandits have also launched a number of deluxe pre-order packages online at http://averagejoesent.com/moonshinebandits which include an exclusive t-shirt, autographed poster, beer koozie and package of the group's own “Whiskey River Beef Jerky."
The tracklisting for Moonshine Bandits' new album is as follows:
1. The Moon Shines (feat. Jeremy Penick)
2. Throwdown (feat. The Lacs)
3. Burn (feat. Big B)
4. We All Country (feat. Colt Ford, Sarah Ross and Charlie Farley)

NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BRANDY CLARK


NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BRANDY CLARK
By Bob Doerschuk
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
Brandy Clark came to Nashville from Morton, Wash., where she watched her grandmother smoke on the front porch as Mount St. Helens erupted a short ways away, and later worked in a fencing mill. Her love for Patsy Cline, Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn, coupled with her perceptive observations of everyday characters, fueled her ascension as a songwriter. Two No. 1 hits — The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” and Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” — are Clark co-writes, along with Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow” and “It Is What It Is” and songs picked up by Sheryl Crow, Kellie Pickler, Reba, Darius Rucker and Kenny Rogers.
What’s surprising is why she waited until now to step forward as a performer. Throughout 12 Stories, produced by Dave Brainard and released by Slate Creek Records, Clark gets deep inside each lyric with an understated but tuneful delivery; sometimes ironic, sometimes laconic, she lets the tales speak vividly for themselves.
Her first single, “Stripes” (written by Clark, Matt Jenkins and Shane McAnally), recounts the protagonist’s decision not to blow away her dimwit boyfriend because “I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes,” told to the twang and gallop of a spaghetti Western soundtrack.
Every other track is a gem too. It’s not necessary to single any of them out; taken individually and as a whole, they confirm that as long as Brandy Clark is around, poetic narrative in the finest tradition of Country songwriting will endure.

CD: The Lacs – 190 Proof

The Lacs – 190 Proof
Product Details
190 Proof -Drinks Up- Po Dunk University – Shake It – Old River Road – Wylin – Great Moments in Redneck History – Country Boy Fresh- Island Time – Just Another Thing – 4 Wheel Drive- Drink Too Much – Ease Along-

Here we go: Country rap from Georgia with Redneck rappers Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe and Brian “Rooster” King, aka the Lacs. Released in 2012, 190 Proof is the band’s 5th Album and 2nd one to hit the charts with the recently created Backroad Records Label.

What do the guys have to offer? Well, powerful songs that depict Southern Rock classic themes (“Old River Road”, “Country Boy Fresh”) sometimes expressed in a more hip-hop manner (“Shake It”). Hence the fact that they describe themselves as a “Hick-hop” band, QED! The Country musical background is often enhanced with heavy guitar riffs, so you will also understand why they chose this name (Lacs stands for “Loud Ass Crackers”). On this point, genuine Country Music lover should better go on their way.
190 Proof is nevertheless not deprived of a certain sensibility, revealing abilities to tell stories and deal with more serious topics (“Great Moments in Redneck History”).

Humor is also one of the LP’s strengths, think about a song like “Drink too much” which might bring back to the Offspring era.

KENNY ROGERS & DOLLY PARTON NOMINATED FOR GRAMMY AWARDS

KENNY ROGERS & DOLLY PARTON NOMINATED
FOR THE THIRD TIME TOGETHER
AT THIS YEAR'S GRAMMY AWARDS


"You Can't Make Old Friends" Nominated
For Best Country Duo/Group Performance
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn (December 9, 2013) – Is the third time a charm for Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton?  Kenny & Dolly received their third joint Grammy nomination on Friday night, December 6th for “You Can't Make Old Friends” for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.  The song is featured on Rogers’ latest Warner Bros. album of the same name.

The nomination is the third for Kenny & Dolly as a duo.  They were previously nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1984 for “Islands In The Stream,” and then again in 1986 for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group for “Real Love.”

Kenny Rogers, the newest member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and recent recipient of the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s CMA Awards had this to say about the nomination: “I'm excited and very flattered about this opportunity and am convinced I should work with Dolly more often if we're getting these kinds of results,” remarked Rogers.

Country Music Hall of Fame member Dolly Parton added, "I was so excited and proud to hear that the Grammys have nominated Kenny and I for Best Country Duo/Group Performance on ‘You Can't Make Old Friends.’  I am also very proud to hear that ‘Jolene’ made the Grammy's Hall of Fame. Thank you everyone!"

“You Can't Make Old Friends” and the 30-year friendship between the two Grammy Award winners is showcased in Kenny & Dolly: An Intimate Conversation, which premieres tonight (Monday, December 9) at 9:00 p.m./ET on Great American Country.  In a relaxed setting, the two stars chat about memories they’ve shared over the years and the chemistry they share that has led to one of the most enduring partnerships in popular music.
