First single hits from Shotgun Holler

Loaded - Shotgun HollerLonesome Day Records has released a radio single from their first project with Shotgun Holler, appropriately titled, Loaded, due to hit in late June

The song concerns a topic that every bluegrass lover can appreciate, the festival or concert parking lot, where friends are made and lost, and music goes on without regard to what may be happening on stage.

Out In The Parking Lot was written by Guy Clark and Darrell Scott, and included on Clark’s 1997 live album, Keepers. Shotgun Holler gives it the full-on bluegrass treatment here.


Shotgun HollerShotgun Holler is Matt Jones on guitar and lead vocals, Shawn Brock on mandolin, Nathan Treadway on banjo, Evan McGregor on fiddle, and Rod Lunger on bass.

Lonesome Day’s Randall Deaton is very high on this new band, whose debut album will release on his new Dry Lightning imprint.

“There is something special about these guys. They have a distinct edge, and like to bring in material that sounds like bluegrass, but with subject matter from well outside.”

Radio programmers can download the single, and other tracks from Loaded, now at Airplay Direct.
