Editor's Alert Regarding This Week's Update

On Saturday, December 7th I drove to Kansas City to cover a sports event as a freelance journalist. After the event was over my car broke down (again) leaving me stranded in K.C. with no repair shops open on Sunday AND a major snowstorm blanketing the Midwest, making it impossible for anybody to pick me up or give me a ride back home.

After getting a hotel for another night in K.C., things went from bad to worse on Monday morning, as the first repair shop my car was towed to decided it was beyond their expertise to fix an apparent computer or electrical malfunction in my car. I had to have the car towed a second time to a dealership with a service center that could actually do computer diagnostics and reprogramming.

As long-time readers of RapReviews are well aware, new updates come out on the site every Tuesday, but that generally means I spent most of Sunday evening and the Monday work day either writing or editing reviews and laying out content for the new update. If my car had been quickly diagnosed and reprogrammed on Monday, I would have still attempted to piece my way through even a small update by the time I drove back home on Monday evening.

That never happened. The car dealership decided my repairs were so significant that they would actually have to take out my seats and dashboard panels just so they could track down where the fault that prevented my engine from starting actually occurred. Rather than spend another night in Kansas City, I got a rental car and came home. I spent the better part of Tuesday arguing with the dealership back home who had ALLEGEDLY fixed my car BEFORE I went to Kansas City. Had I known their fix actually didn't fix a damn thing, I wouldn't have driven to K.C. to begin with.

The chances of an update this week went further down the tubes when the Kansas City dealership called and told me my car was ready to be picked up, meaning six hours on the road just to return my rental, pay for my repairs and drive back home with my P.O.S. That took up most of my Wednesday and left me little time except to update the RR newsfeed with new audio and video clips sent to my overflowing inbox.

As we've now reached Thursday at this point, I'm going to postpone this week's new reviews, interviews and articles until next Tuesday - getting an early start on what should be a larger than usual update next week. I apologize to our readers who are used to big updates every Tuesday but in this circumstance it was almost impossible to make it happen. The lack of update is painful to me, but not nearly as painful as the nearly $1,000 I'm out between car repairs, tow trucks, hotel rooms, rentals, and meals.

Questions, comments or complaints can be directed to or on Twitter @RapReviews. Look forawrd to our next big RR update on Tuesday, December 17th.

Los Banos, CA outlaw rebels, the Moonshine Bandits have set February 4th, 2014 as the release date for their brand new studio album “Cali Country” through Nashville-based Average Joes Entertainment and Suburban Noize Records. The group has also announced that they will premiere their new video for the song “California Country” online on Christmas day as a thank-you to their loyal fans, the Shiner Nation.

“A lot of our music is hell-raising music,” Tex says. “Our guitars are very loud and our bass is pretty heavy. It’s very much in-your-face kind of music that you can party down to. We’ve got a few songs on there that are a little more personal and a little bit slower. But, for the most part it’s very aggressive.”

The Moonshine Bandits new album “Cali Country” was executive produced by none other than country superstar Colt Ford and Average Joes’ CEO Shannon Houchins. The album is set to feature guest appearances by The Lacs, Colt Ford, Big B, Danny Boone from Rehab, Durwood Black, and American Idol finalist Sarah Ross. From the thumping first single “California Country,” to the party anthem “Throwdown,” and the contagious “We All Country”, the Moonshine Bandits brand of "Cali Country" will surely turn some heads.

“Cali Country” is now available for pre-order on iTunes at where fans can instantly download the two brand new songs "Arrest Me" and "California Country". The Moonshine Bandits have also launched a number of deluxe pre-order packages online at which include a exclusive t-shirt, autographed poster, beer koozie and package of the group's own “Whiskey River Beef Jerky”.

The tracklisting for the Moonshine Bandits new album is as follows:
1. The Moon Shines (feat. Jeremy Penick)
2. Throwdown (feat. The Lacs)
3. Burn (feat. Big B)
4. We All Country (feat. Colt Ford, Sarah Ross and Charlie Farley)
5. On The Run (feat. Durwood Black)
6. Raise Some Hell
7. What She Does to Me
8. Feel No Pain (feat. Danny Boone)
9. On My Way
10. Much Better
11. Wrong Side of the Street (feat. Durwood Black)
12. 86
13. California Country
14. Arrest Me
15. Bar Stool

Since the release of their genre-blending album, “Whiskey & Women,” California-based Moonshine Bandits have taken the world of outlaw music by storm. The group’s blue-collar work ethic and unwavering persistence has led to over 10 million views on the ShinerTV YouTube channel – collectively over 15 million views on YouTube - while their video for “My Kind of Country” peaked at #1 on CMT. Connecting with fans on all levels, the Moonshine Bandits have built a solid “Shiner Nation” of loyal fans, developed their own brand of Shiner Barbeque Seasoning, Beef Jerky and legal Moonshine (sold up and down the west coast). They also host “Shinerfest” an outdoor festival in Northern California.
