In three short years JB Patterson, the frontman for JB and the Moonshine Band, went from a career in advertising to playing shows across the country, including the Taste of Country Christmas Tour. Had he auditioned for some reality television show or landed one of his songs on a major movie soundtrack, this rapid ascent would make sense. But Patterson found his bandmates from a classified ad in early 2009. In an interview with Taste of Country he admits he was naive with a capital, boldfaced -- underlined "N."
Casey James will bring fellow Texans JB and the Moonshine Band on the road with him this fall as they take the Taste of Country Christmas Tour across the southern United States. The 11-stop run pairs two of the hottest young acts in country music on a trip through Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas during the holiday season.
Country music is fat with trios (Rascal Flatts, the Band Perry, Lady Antebellum, etc), but short on groups willing to add a fourth member. Some -- like Gloriana -- have tried, only to trim a member at a later date. Of the active groups in country music, which is the best quartet?
Yesterday's battle of Texas country quartets left only one as champion. 'No Better Than This' is the current king, meaning the uptempo new song from JB and the Moonshine Band will face a new challenger today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio. Remember, you can vote every hour online, as well as on the phone after 7PM by calling the Taste of Country Nights studio at (888) 678-9995.
Fans of Eli Young Band pulled off one of the greatest Showdown upsets of all time on Tuesday. The group's new single 'Say Goodnight' topped Taylor Swift's brand new single from her upcoming 'Red' album, 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.' That makes it three in a row for the Texas foursome's love ballad. Two more and it will be retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
Not all summer songs come across as fun and breezy. Too often they're saturated with sugar or references to the juniper in Georgia or how hot the sun in Oklahoma shines on the scorched earth. JB and the Moonshine Band don't overthink things with their new single 'No Better Than This.' It's an easy emotion tied up in under three minutes.
