“With Dispatch to 16th Ave. the duo have proved that there is something deeper, more authentic and inherently timeless about their sound and style…” – Lyric Magazine
“[‘Dyin’ for a Livin’ is] a raucous blast of punk honky-tonk that conveys the thrill of being onstage as well as the toll of too many sleepless nights.” – Rolling Stone
“One of 2022’s most highly anticipated releases.” – Today’s Country Magazine
“After searching for a long time, we finally feel like we have found what we want to say and what we want to sound like. The record is loosely arranged in the concept of honoring the artists who came before us. They recorded with limited instruments and didn’t use modern sounds or bells and whistles. Charlie played all of the acoustic guitar parts, Gary did the same with the electric and we used our touring band to create the most raw and real sound we could bring – with no edits. As we see ourselves evolving into better artists and performers, it feels like we found a perfect place to park the ship. Better get comfortable because this album is what we believe to be the best Muscadine Bloodline,” says Muncaster and Stanton.

About Muscadine Bloodline
Proudly independent and unapologetically Southern, country duo Muscadine Bloodline find their true voice on their upcoming new album, Dispatch to 16th Ave. Charlie Muncaster and Gary Stanton grew up in Mobile, Alabama, but didn’t cross paths until they each started to pursue their musical dreams. In 2012, they forged a friendship when Stanton opened a show for Muncaster’s band at Soul Kitchen in Mobile. Charlie’s contemporary vocals complimented by Gary’s harmonies and masterful guitar licks showcase a powerfully refreshing mix of talent, passion and unfiltered authenticity. Since naming themselves Muscadine Bloodline in 2015, they’ve had two Billboard-charting critically-acclaimed EP’s, have sold out shows across the country, opened concerts for hundreds of artists and earned a standing ovation at their Grand Ole Opry debut in 2018. The guys’ Southern roots carry over to their band name as well: Muscadine grapes grow in the South while Bloodline represents their heritage.
