Description: Blasting intensity right out of the gate, country influenced rockers Hillbilly Vegas got loads of traction with their debut album Ringo Manor, moving a whopping 10,000 copies (massive for an emerging indie band) and scoring major chart action for its first single “Little Miss Rough and Tumble” was on the national country music charts for 26 weeks.
Great breakthroughs, sure, but the band – led by Steve Harris (vocals and rhythm guitar) Stacy Thornburg (lead guitar, vocals), Johnny Reed (guitar, vocals), Robb Edwards (bass) and Troy Hollinger (drums)– wanted to get back to their more raucous roots. So they hightailed it to Dallas to work with renowned Texas rock producer Alex Gerst at Empire Sound Recording Studio.
Now, with deeper attitude and edge, they’re celebrating the freewheeling spirit of 76’ (their new EP) and getting everyone to “Shake It Like A Hillbilly” with their fiery, rockin’ new single and high energy video. Good mojo’s always essential when bands make a powerful sonic move, and Hillbilly Vegas got tons of it being recorded on the very recording console Bruce Springsteen used for Born In The USA at The Power Station.
