When your sound has been described as being similar to Hank Williams Jr., it’s likely you have a bright future ahead of you. This is the case with country music stars Moccasin Creek, whose album Motive features hard-lined lyrics about hard living. Featuring the duo of front man Jeff McCool and his partner Charlie Bonnet III, better known as “CB3,” this dynamic duo has hit Nashville like a strong tornado.
With music critics in Nashville and across the United States raving about Motive’s songs featuring classic country music poetry weaved into a modern mix of songs that appeal to a new generation of fans, Moccasin Creek seems poised to be at the forefront of country music for many years to come. With many of the album’s songs, which feature hard-driving guitar licks and progressive lyrics, it’s no wonder fans who consider themselves to be true rednecks have made Motive one of 2018’s most successful albums.
Whether it is the modern-day redneck anthem “Proud American” or other tracks such as “Suds and Bud,” “Momma Told Me,” “Devil Don’t Wait,” or “Break Me Down,” Moccasin Creek’s Motive album has a song that seems to appeal to everyone who listens to it. Because of this, it is garnering the duo of McCool and Bonnet widespread appeal among not only today’s new generation of country music fans, but also those who grew up listening to Hank Jr., Hank Sr., and other singers who weren’t afraid to tell it like it is song after song.
