Hillbilly Vegas is a Southern Rock Country band from Oklahoma.
In 2011, the band had recorded their first full length album, ‘Ringo Manor’. The debut album sold more than 10,000 hard copies—massive for an emerging indie band. They scored major chart action with their first single ‘Little Miss Rough and Tumble’ later that year. It stayed on the national country music charts for more than 26 weeks.
Their next album release was ‘76 in 2016. They charted a single, ‘High Time for a Good Time’, from that release and it stayed on the country music charts for 18 weeks. That song also became the theme song for their drink sponsor ‘Rocky Mountain High’.
With deeper attitude and edge, they dived in to celebrate the freewheeling spirit of their EP ‘76 and getting everyone to “Shake It Like a Hillbilly” with their fiery, rockin’ new single and high energy video.
