Texas Hippie Coalition’s new album, “High In The Saddle”, was released on May 31, 2019. The first single from the disc, “Moonshine”, can be streamed below. It’s the band’s second round with producer Bob Marlette who also produced their album “Peacemaker.”
Big Dad Ritch: “When you hear the word moonshine, the first thing that comes to mind is usually a mason jar filled with grandpa’s creek water,” says frontman Big Dad Ritch. “This is a different kind of moonshine.”
“Many men throughout time have referred to their woman (sweet thang) as their sweet sunshine. Me being a creature of darkness and a lord of the night, I do all my dirty deeds under the moonlight. And when I talk about my baby girl, my sweet thang, I refer to her as my moonshine…”
You can watch the video for “Moonshine” below.
Big Dad Ritch captains this pirate ship of bikers, outlaws, troubadours, and hellraisers, welcoming all comers to the TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION party with gregarious charisma and Southern charm. Across a half dozen albums, countless club gigs, and show-stealing performances at Rockstar Mayhem, TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION has spread the good word of big riffs, big hooks, and wild times.
