Country rockers, JB and the Moonshine Band, released their third album, ‘Mixtape’ on June 30, 2015. The release marked the follow-up to the band’s previous albums ‘Ain’t Goin’ Back To Jail’ and ‘Beer for Breakfast.’
The lead off single from the album, “Shotgun, Rifle, and a .45,” is a lyrical statement supporting one’s individual right to the 2nd Amendment. The single which was written by front man JB Patterson, is about more than one’s individual right to bear arms.
JB and the Moonshine Band recently released the video for “Shotgun, Rifle, and a .45.” The group is very passionate about their stance on the topic, and feels that their views will resonate with their fans.
Check out the video here:
Not matter what side of the issue you may be on, you definitely know that JB sings what he believes. It has an assertive introduction that leads into a grungey-country rock (add a bit of hip hop in the chorus) that hits the nail on the head with its lyrical points, conviction and firmness.
Will we watch over our freedom
Or will we just watch more tv
Cause we keep flipping thru these stations, but we forgot what this nation’s founded on
Yeah we gotta stand up for our rights or before we know it we’ll turn around and they’ll be gone”
“Shotgun, Rifle and a .45” will without a doubt become an anthem for those who value and support the 2nd Amendment. Their live performance of the hit is already receiving an incredible response from their audience.
The single for “Shotgun, Rifle, and a .45” was released to iTunes, Amazon, and Play MPE in May and was the second most streamed single on Play MPE the week it debuted. The group has also recently been featured in Country Weekly magazine.
