Cinncinnati seems like an odd place for a band that patterns its schtick on Hank Jr.'s redneck asshole-ism, but that is exactly where Dallas Moore and the Snatch Wranglers are based. They're touring Texas right now, and will be on Austin Fox affiliate KTBC's morning news next week. It should be interesting to see the announcer tip-toe around "Snatch Wranglers."
You can probably already guess where the Wranglers go lyrically: "They called us dangerous then, they call us outlaw country now." Swaggering by-the-numbers Waylon beat, macho attitude, whiskey-aggravated vocals. Uh huh.
Here's another: "He's the king of Bullshit Mountain, but he's an alright guy." Same beat, same voice. And everyone screams "bullshit" on the choruses.
Rocks Off hopes these ass-whuppin', whiskey-swillin', woman-thrillin' Snatch Wranglers don't make a wrong turn and wind up at Chances
. Could get ugly in a hurry.
