Get #LadyLucky- with Moonshine Bandit New Single

So if you’ve ever spent time out with me you know that the Moonshine Bandits are one of my go-to plays to get the party started.  I’ve known Bird and Tex from the Moonshine Bandits almost 10 years. True to their name they stole my attention under the moonshine at a nightclub in Fresno and I’ve been mesmerized ever since. It was like the Beastie Boys, Kid Rock and Bocephus had a baby, or maybe it would be more visually suitable to say, if you were to put those artists in a blender, that’s what the Moonshine Bandits remind me of.  

“Lady Luck,” the lead single from BackRoad recording artists Moonshine Bandits’ forthcoming album, Blacked Out, released to radio this week. With a big, bold Rolling Stones circa Honky Tonk Women Live in 69 opening that has pedal to the metal double kick drum base backed by electric guitar licks and riffs; before the vocals even kick in, you know this song’s about to bring it…featuring Crucifix, Lady Luck is sure to be a hick hop, southern fried country rap rock favorite. Recorded in my old stomping-hood Central Cali, “Lady Luck,” has the trademark Moonshine Bandits’ sound with a healthy infusion of ‘redneck, rockin’ grit.’ Crucifix, billed a rapper, pulls off some big bad ass vocals that would make even Mick shake.

I personally discovered Hick Hop that night in Fresno, even though I didn’t know that’s what it was called. The boys put on a full stage show moving around with so much energy Richard Simmons would barely be able to keep up. Including a lifted stage, about a foot and half off the club dance floor, they had a poll for the scantily clad dancing gals in American flag bathing suit, wearing cowboy hats, boots and daisy dukes. I’d never seen anything like this before and I’ve been to a rave. The energy they put out is contagious. You have to see them in concert, it’s an absolutely surreal experience, so when you see them coming to your city…GO GO GO!!!!

On their new album:

We set out to make a blue-collar record for people who work their asses off and, come Friday and Saturday, just want to let loose and party, says MSB’s Tex. That was the theme of the album from Day One.
We challenged ourselves to explore new ways of writing and performing on this album, said Bird, MSB’s other half. It was an eye-opening experience for me and Tex writing with some of Nashville’s edgiest hitmakers.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
