JB and the Moonshine Band Excited to Kick Off the Taste of Country Christmas Tour

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Texas country stars JB and the Moonshine Band are itching to begin the Taste of Country Christmas Tour this week. The first show of the run — a stop in Abilene, Texas — is scheduled for Thursday (Nov. 15). Lead singer JB Patterson tells Taste of Country Nights radio host Jeremy Robinson that he’s especially looking forward to playing dates with Casey James, who’s also on the bill.

“I think we’re all gonna dress up as Santa and elves,'” Patterson reveals, possibly joking, in the video. With his dry sense of humor, it’s difficult to tell when he’s being sarcastic. Previously, he told Taste of Country he might mix a few classics into the usually rowdy set.

“Perhaps… ‘Santa Got Ran Over by a Reindeer’ or ‘Jingle bells / Batman smells‘ or any of the old classics,” he said when asked which Christmas hits the band might play.

After talking about the Taste of Country Tour, the band played an acoustic version of ‘Kiss Me That Way,’ a song Patterson says he wrote on vacation after he and his wife got into an argument. “So at 3AM that morning, I went out on the beach in Galveston and that kiss was still with me and I wrote that song,” he says.
