Bootleggers have long been a secret society of their very own. Tucked far into the gritty backwoods of the ’20s, were men willing to risk life and limb for the sake of those desperate to imbibe. They were saviors and sinners, outlaws; revolutionaries with courage and gall to do what most wouldn’t. These folks were daredevils willing to risk it all. They were and still are inspiring.
Fire in the Blood is a southern gothic mixtape with an old blue grass twist. Days of moonshinin’ and rum running and the thrill of that excitement are so prevalent in songs such as ‘White Light, White Heat’ while Colter Wall’s ‘Sleeping on the Black Top’ unveils the consequences of dirty deeds done with no regard.
For the thrill of police chases across the border in rusted out model T’s. The floozie’s with their skirts hiked up in the front seat. Trails and trenches only their tattered feet had memorized. For the whiskey strong and stealthy mongrels that are thirsty for dirty money. For the one’s who can’t live without the fast paced chase.
