JB and the Moonshine Band's new album "Mixtape" is out today. Ahead of its release JB and the boys have been sharing videos from their 100-year-old cabin they purchased off of Craigslist and turned into their recording studio. Old cabins all have at two things for sure: 1. Swell acoustics. 2. Snakes.

Watch as JB's attempts at "Mixtape" behind-the-song-story-telling at the old cabin, become side-tracked, even thwarted at times, by adventures; including snake tracking, fishing, mouse watching and more.

Of the new album, band front man JB Patterson comments:

Although ‘Mixtape’ is the title of one of the songs on the album, it also describes the varied styles on the album. I would say that the album is indeed Country, but more specifically, it’s traditional Country, outlaw/alternative Country, pop Country, rock and Americana all at the same time. The fact that every song has a different feel just reinforced that the album should be called ‘Mixtape’. All in all, Mixtape offers of a wide variety of styles, themes and subject matter while maintaining the sonic characteristics and authenticity that our fans are used to.

"Mixtape" is the third album from the Moonshine Band, and follows up 2012's "Beer for Breakfast," which Rolling Stone named to their Top 5 ‘Country Albums of the Year’ list. The band’s previous releases produced six Top 10 singles and three consecutive No.1’s on the Texas music charts.

And heads up, this Saturday (July 4) tune into Radio Texas, LIVE! as JB, Gabe, Hayden, and C-Flo will be in studio with us for the first-ever "JBMB Mixtape Mashup." I know, right? And it'll be even more exciting than that reads.
