Moonshine Bandits on Outlaw Lifestyles, and Bringing Country and Hip-Hop Closer Together

Bird and Tex are perhaps the only individuals who can offer a firsthand comparison between sharing the stage with both Insane Clown Posse and Toby Keith in the same year. Together, the California-based outlaw musicians make up the hybrid country/hip-hop duo Moonshine Bandits, and in the land of the 'Shiners, such odd pairings are not unfamiliar.

After performing with an array of artists over the years, from the aforementioned to Tech N9ne, David Allan Coe, and Luke Bryan, the Moonshine Bandits are ready to headline their own tour, which kicks off at Rockbar in Scottsdale on Thursday night.
