Muscadine Bloodline Share Inspirational Video About Journey Of “Porch Swing Angel” To A Gold Record

Muscadine Bloodline country music

For those that are trying to live out their dreams, this is a must watch. For those that have given up on their dreams, maybe watching this will change your mind. Either way, just watch it.

Muscadine Bloodline burst onto the scene back in 2017 and they haven’t looked back since. If you’ve discovered them in recent years, it might be hard to believe that the rocking country duo of Gary Stanton and Charlie Muncaster haven’t always been famous.

However, as most musical success stories go, there was a struggle getting started and there weren’t always thousands of fans singing their choruses back at concerts. Actually, when Stanton first performed Muscadine Bloodline’s hit song “Porch Swing Angel,” it seemed like no one cared at all.

The band shared a video showing how their song, and the band’s success, has transformed over the years. The super-cut footage begins with Stanton singing the well-known song before it was well-known on the steps of a town building, with many people talking and ignoring the performance.

The captions on the TikTok say:

“I wrote this song when I was 18. Nobody cared, but stuck with it.

And then this happened…”

The video then quickly cuts to venues where crowds of thousands of fans are helping sing the catchy chorus of “Porch Swing Angel” as Muscadine Bloodline plays on stage. The crowds get bigger, and bigger, and bigger…

It is such a cool transformation and the video is put together so well that it might even give you goosebumps.

“This song came out 6 years ago today! Chase your dreams and don’t take no for an answer!”

If that doesn’t get you fired up, I don’t know what will.

One half of the country music duo, Gary Stanton, comes on at the end of the video and delivers these inspiring words:

“Don’t listen to anybody. Prove em’ all wrong and chase your dreams.”

As Stanton turns towards the wall he is recording the video next to, a framed “Certified Gold Single” plaque is revealed. What a thrilling moment that must be for both Stanton and Muncaster to look back on to see just how far they have come.

I’m sure time moved pretty slowly for the group as they got started, but now those six years in between the song releasing and this moment flash by in a 24 second video. Hindsight is always 20/20, but Muscadine Bloodline always believed in their vision.

On Instagram, they shared a slightly different caption:

“6 years ago, today, “Porch Swing Angel” came out!

The process was be patient, and don’t take no for an answer. We have the same mindset after all this time.

Thank y’all for what this song did and is still doing for us. We start recording the next album tomorrow!”


From the humble performance on the building steps to leading a chorus-sing-along at a sold out venue, it may seem like things have changed substantially, but “Porch Swing Angel” and the band that delivered it have always very much stayed the same.

And peep that Whiskey Riff hat in the music video… we been there from the beginning:
