Have you heard the Moonshine Bandits?
This was my first taste of their kind of country and I have to say I’m really liking it. The country rap sound is here and I think it’s going to be sticking around a while. There are a lot of folks out there that love this kind of music. The blend is country, rap and rock. People dig it. Check out the offering from the Moonshine Bandits and their latest single My Kind of Country…
My Kind of Country – Moonshine Bandits
I don’t know if Colt Ford will get credit or what will happen, but the country rap scene is really taking shape. Now that the genre is really taking off as one of the popular off shoots of country it seems obvious.
We all know a few of the guys and gals that love this kind of music. They sit in their cars and trucks in the parking lot and listen to a mix of rap, country and rock. There was never something written specifically for them until just the last few years.
My first introduction was Colt Ford, but now there are a few really good artists coming out in the genre. The Moonshine Bandits are the next group to have some good songs and it starts with this one, My Kind of Country.
My Kind of Country is about all the things these guys are seeing in their life. They’re heading out to the fishing hole. They’re enjoying their Friday paychecks. These are the things so many of us look forward to each week. We love the life and we love our friends. There is nothing better than living this kind of country lifestyle.
The melody of My Kind of Country is a little campy, but it works. You sing along and you feel the lyrics. They’re easy to follow. There are even a few samples of popular songs from the ’70s, which you can’t go wrong with. I love it.
The Moonshine Bandits show their influences in this song. I’m really a fan of what they’re doing. I’m starting to come around to this country rap thing. It’s working for me.
It proves that you just need a good melody and some relatable lyrics and you can make something work.
