Moonshine Bandits Premiere"I Don't Wanna Go Home," Featuring Kenny Olson

Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of "I Don't Wanna Go Home," a new song by Moonshine Bandits that happens to feature Durwood Black and guitarist Kenny Olson, formerly of Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker Band.

The song is from Moonshine Bandits' new album, Baptized in Bourbon, which will be released March 3 via Average Joes Entertainment.

"This is one of those songs that the bars will play at the end of the night because people don't want to leave the party," says Moonshine Bandits' Dusty Dahlgren, better known as Tex.

"Burn County handled the production and Durwood Black did a great job on the chorus. We were stoked to get Kenny Olson involved to lay down some great guitar licks. This will sound good on touch tunes jukeboxes in dive bars all across America."

"It was very cool to work with the Moonshine Bandits on this track," Olson adds. "I love the organic vibe and timeless seasonings that were brought to life in this song. I know the masses will love 'I Don't Wanna Go Home,' which is just one of Moonshine Bandits' great songs. Their killer sound really shines through when they take the stage. I look forward to working with them again!"

Besides Black and Olsen, Baptized in Bourbon also finds the band collaborating with Uncle Kracker, David Allan Coe, Colt Ford, Bubba Sparxxx, Demun Jones, Jelly Roll, YouTube sensation Jared "Outlaw Dipper," the Lacs and Matt Borden.

Before that, he was Guitar World’s managing editor and online managing editor, and his non-Pulitzer-Prize-winning stories have appeared in Guitar Aficionado, Vintage Guitar, Total Guitar and several other rectangular places. He's been known to write some riveting liner notes, including Stevie Ray Vaughan's Complete Epic Recordings Collection box set by Sony Legacy. Damian, a former member of Brooklyn's Gas House Gorillas, also was the sole guitarist in Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin's Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with at least two New York City-area bands and often can be spotted with a Telecaster, probably with a four-way switch, a Gene Parsons-installed B-bender and aftermarket pickups.
