Dusty “Tex” Dahlgren and Brett “Bird” Brooks formed Moonshine Bandits back in 2003. The self-described “hell-raisers” have their own brand of moonshine, and “Tex” actually had a great-grandfather who was a bootlegger in his day. The California country rap duo has released six albums and an EP. Moonshine Bandits released their latest album in July of this year. The album, Blacked Out, reached #13 on the Country chart, #11 on the Rap chart, #13 on the Indie chart, and #158 on the Billboard 200. The band has toured with everyone from Insane Clown Posse to Luke Bryan and Toby Keith, and they have recorded with Colt Ford, Bubba Sparxxx, Moccasin Creek, and others.
