CD Review: Hillbilly Vegas Debut With "Ringo Manor"

The roots of the band Hillbilly Vegas spread from Oklahoma to Nashville, capturing every type of music along the way. Their debut release entitled “Ringo Manor” brings together the sounds of rock, country and rockabilly to create a heavier southern rock sound.

The album starts off with the up-tempo, country-rocker “Shake It Like A Hillbilly.” The song carries a groove that’s sure to move you. The band brings together songs about having a good time (“Oklahoma 3.2,” “Mason Jars and Moonlight”) and about heartache (“Broken,” “Wrong Side of Goodbye”). Hillbilly Vegas bring out the hoedown with the two-step filled “Grits N Gravy,” then pays tribute to country legends of the past with the sound of “Faces Change.” The vocals and harmonies of “From An Empty Room” show off the versatility this band has when performing.

Hillbilly Vegas have some live dates scattered over the next few months. For more information on this band, be sure to check out
