This isn’t your every day bluegrass band that blends in with all the rest. Shotgun Holler strives to stand out and push the boundaries of a great genre. Their songwriting doesn’t cover your typical topics that you’ve heard before in traditional bluegrass, they touch on some darker subject matter such as prostitutes and drug addiction. Plus they cover pop songs that you wouldn’t expect to be easily translated to bluegrass but they do it seamlessly in the cover of Miley Cyrus ‘Wrecking Ball’ which they performed on CMT’s Josh Wolf Show.
