For Immediate Release
May 26, 2022
A Nod to Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band
Bold Track Due June 24, 2022 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. The raucous and rowdy indie southern rock band, Six Gun Sally, will release its fifteenth studio recording “Redneck White & Badass Blue”* via all digital retail outlets and streaming platforms on Friday, June 24, 2022, with the pre-save/presale event launching Friday, June 10. (Spotify) (Distribution by Ed Gertler/ Digital Retail Services.) The new release follows the momentum of the band’s previous single,
“Drunk Text.”
With a nod to the group’s musical heroes (Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers and Marshall Tucker Band), the make-no-bones-about-it original reveals the band’s 70s rock musical style and boisterous character. The revving opener, whammy electric guitar runs and gritty vocals (led by Allen Granus) set the pace for bold, take-it or leave-it lyrics (spotlighting “Freebird” and “Home Sweet Home”), while playful piano licks lighten the vibe as facetious humor. Written by Jeff Thurston, Anthony Smith, and Dave Barbe (band member and drummer), and produced by Thurston, Matt Muckle and Barbe, the “loud and proud” track was recorded at Hollywood Studios of Pittsburgh (engineered by Matt Vaughan) and features instrumental and vocal performances by all seven members (including Barbe on drums, Lori Bernish/background vocals, Jeff Yeckel/lead guitar, Dan Rach/keys, Stan Brusoski/bass, and Billy G/percussion.)
Got a raging fire burning in my soul
I’m a free bird ya can’t control
So let’s take a toke and sing a song
About our home sweet home
I love my country, that’s the truth
Redneck white and badass blue 

“The idea was to write a tune that captured the spirit and essence of music from the early 70s—all in one song. This track has Skynyrd and southern country rock smeared all of it; it pays homage to those bands that made music great in that era,” said co-producer/co-writer, Jeff Thurston.  "The lyrics represent a prideful stand for our heritage, our flag and those that have sacrificed for our freedoms. Six Gun Sally is a band of Americans who sing about love, loss, freedom and hope; and recalling where they came from."

The corresponding “Redneck White & Badass Blue” music video was shot in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Six Gun Sally home base) by Peter Guellard/Psycho Tribe and is positioned for a world premiere in early July.

A must-see, powerhouse of accomplished musicians and extraordinary vocalists, Six Gun Sally pays homage to the trendsetter bands of the 70s. The group of seven performs nearly 65 dates a year catering to audiences of all ages with a hankering for good ole southern and classic rock music (a la Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Molly Hatchet, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac) and smokin' hot originals in the same vein. The Pennsylvania-based band released its self-titled CD (2021) featuring 14 originals, including “Devil Made Me Do It,” “Sweet Long And Lean,” and the 2021 release, “Drunk Text.”
