RTX Sunday Video: JB and the Moonshine Band ‘No Better Than This’
Where are JB and the boys? Honestly, I don't know. I still get a message every now and then, a listener asking that very question though. The guys are certainly missed around the Texas scene.
In 2009, JB and the Moonshine Band broke into the Texas scene with their first radio single, “Perfect Girl,” off their debut album, Ain’t Goin’ Back to Jail.
Hits including “Whiskey Days” and “Love Don’t Let You Decide” followed, and their fan base exploded. Soon the band returned to the studio to create Beer for Breakfast in 2012.
Rolling Stone named Beer for Breakfast one of the best country albums of the year that year, and it reached No. 31 on the Billboard country chart. Their second album produced six radio singles; “Beer for Breakfast,” “No Better Than This,” “Kiss Me That Way,” “I’m Down,” “The Only Drug,” and “Yes.”
With all success of their sophomore album, it would be 2015 before JB and the Moonshine Band released their followup. Mixtape saw the boys keep their unique sound alive, with hits including the patriotic “Shotgun, Rifle, and a .45,″ and the album's title track.
In 2017 the guys did a soft release for a new single "When it Rains I Pour," since then we haven't heard much from the guys though. Hopefully there is something in the works. If not, though, we can always grab a "Beer for Breakfast" and remember those good ol' days.
