Southern rock and country artist Scooter Brown has teamed up with veteran-owned Merica Bourbon for a special Scooter Brown Signature Series. As a Marine vet himself with an affinity for good whiskey, the collaboration felt only natural. Everyone knows that country music pairs perfectly with bourbon – according to Merica, both are “meant to be shared with friends, reminiscing on the good moments in life.”
“It’s been a dream of mine to put out my own whiskey. The partnership with Merica Bourbon has turned into so much more. A veteran owned company all made in the USA is obviously a perfect fit as well… and the whiskey is delicious!” says Brown.
“I am very happy to be working with such a talented musician as Scooter Brown on his Merica Bourbon Signature Series, It has been amazing working with another veteran who believes in a quality, affordable Bourbon that gives back!” says founder Derek Sisson.
Proudly made in America, Merica Bourbon Whiskey, uses only the finest American grain to offer the cleanest, smoothest and best tasting whiskey. Derived from American history, Merica Bourbon is made with the same passion that makes this country great.
Scooter Brown Band recently released their newest double single on Veterans Day. The original, “Something Waylon Would Sing,” has that traditional outlaw feel, while the Waylon Jennings cover, “Don’t You Think This Outlaw Bit’s Done Got Out Of Hand,” modernises a classic tune. Listen to both songs here.
The single has been added to Apple Music’s Country Roads, Don’t Mess With Texas and New Country Music playlists and can also be found on their Country Hot Tracks feature. Spotify added the song to their Next From Nashville playlist.
“It starts out semi-spoken, with a steel guitar weeping in the background. Then that familiar Waylors beat kicks in and the thumper production adds chicken-pickin’ Telecaster guitar and the audio pleasure meter goes up to “10.” Well done.” – Robert K. Oermann, Music Row
