Shotgun Wedding is a Brooklyn-based band blazing their own trail with a new music genre, "City-Country". Their songs and music reflect life in NYC - steeped in Bakersfield country, rock-n-roll, with a dash of swing. Trade your front porch for a fire escape, your trusty steed for the 7 train, Ol' Yeller for a yellow cab and well...you get the picture. Raw, honest and from the heart, Shotgun Wedding takes a unique approach to a time-honored genre: re-imagining songs by Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, George Jones and Ernest Tubb… while also firing off original songs that are at once down-home and downtown, including tunes about bartenders, broken hearts – even a Brooklyn Rag.
