Backwoods bravado, medications patriot's pride, country soul, keg-thumping beats – these are the qualities that Moonshine Bandits have championed since they began burning up the California club circuit back in 2003. Long before people figured out country and rap had a lot in common, the Moonshine Bandits released their genre-blending 2011 album, Whiskey & Women and hit single "My Kind Of Country," taking the world of outlaw music by storm in the process.
Country superstar Colt Ford and alt-rocker Big B jumped into the studio on "For the Outlawz", while Danny Boone from REHAB contributed the monstrous hook on "Moonshine On Me," Daddy X and Dirtball from the Kottonmouth Kings drop by on the track "Fire It Up," and singer/songwriter Sunny Ledfurd adds some country flavor to "Los Banos." The album also features production by some of the best in both the hip-hop and country worlds including Tyrant (E-40, Bubba Sparxxx, Tech N9ne), Shannon Houchins (TLC, Colt Ford, Usher, Jamey Johnson), and former Uncle Kracker drummer Eric Hoegemeyer.
As a thank you to their loyal "Shiner" fan base for all their support, the Moonshine Bandits have assembled a Whiskey & Women: Deluxe Shiner Edition, packed with 16 slamming tracks and 5 smoking new songs The Bandits entered the studio to record for this exclusive collection. To aid them the Moonshine Bandits enlisted some of the biggest outlaws in the scene to create some intoxicating musical chemistry. Rehab's Danny Boone jumped in the studio to lay down some Southern soul on the new Shiner anthem "Dive Bar Beauty Queen," the Bandits load up on "Shotgun Shells & Shine," while Paradime from the Kid Rock band give the fingers to detractors on "Addicted," and hick-hop outlaw Big Smo spits straight 151 on "Hell Raisin' Country."
