Moonshiner – first single from the Slaughters

Moonshiner - Shannon & Heather SlaughterShannon & Heather Slaughter have released a debut single from their upcoming album, Never Just A Song.

It’s their version of the familiar mountain ballad, Moonshiner, but with a bluesy, pentatonic twist. Shannon says they heard it this way on a record by Harley Allen and Mike Lilly, favorites of both he and Heather.

Shannon is on guitar, with Ronald Inscore on mandolin, Trevor Watson on banjo, Cliff Bailey on bass, Ron Stewart on fiddle, and Randy Kohrs on reso-guitar.


The single is offered for sale now from CD Baby or iTunes, and is available for download by radio programmers at Airplay Direct.

Never Just A Song will be released on February 1, and the Slaughters will celebrate with an Album Release Concert at the Station Inn on January 24 in Nashville. Special guests will include Randy Kohrs, Melonie Cannon, Aubrey Haynie, Ron Inscore, Trevor Watson, Cliff Bailey, and more.
