Moonshine Bandits Featuring Big Smo, ‘Hell Raisin’ Country’ – Exclusive Premiere

Whiskey and Women
Suburban Noize Records

California outlaw country duo Moonshine Bandits will release the deluxe edition of their latest album ‘Whiskey and Women’ on Tuesday (Dec. 4). The new collection features four new songs, including a collaboration with country rapper Big Smo. Listen to the Taste of Country-exclusive premiere of ‘Hell Raisin’ Country’ below.

The group’s new single, ‘Dive Bar Beauty Queen,’ is also on the deluxe edition of the 2011 album. That song features Danny Boone of Rehab. Additionally, the package comes with a DVD of six music videos, including the clip for ‘Dive Bar Beauty Queen.’

Big Tex from the Moonshine Bandits says they wrote ‘Hell Raisin’ Country’ to remind people that California is the home to some pretty good country living, as well as country music. “Our style of music is far from traditional country, but the way we write songs is natural to us,” he explains.¬†“We reached out to our buddy Smo because his style of music is similar to ours. Smo did a great job writing lyrics that depict his Tennessee southern roots and his take on country.”

“It’s a blessing to be a part of something new and fun,” Big Smo added. “Such a perfect hybrid of all the great tunes and genres I grew up listening to. A lil’ bit of outlaw country, combined with classic rock n’ roll and dirty south hip-hop.¬†Without a doubt, it’s time to make room for a new genre of music!”

The deluxe “Shiner” edition of ‘Whiskey and Women’ is available at Best Buy.
