The independent country duo has certainly taken the country music world by storm in the past decade. Gary Stanton and Charlie Muncaster have prided themselves in making rocking country music, and they try to bottle up their high-energy and emotional live performances into new songs any chance they get.
This teaser for their new song releasing next Friday titled “Low Hangin’ Fruit” seems to both follow along with what fans have come to expect from Muscadine Bloodline as well as give listeners the most personal and emotionally charged song from the duo to date.
In the video, which was posted onto Muscadine Bloodlines’ social media profiles, Muncaster talks straight to the camera (and his ex) speaking about the process of getting past a previous relationship:
“I hope it gets better. I hope it gets better, is something easy to say, when I know you’re at the bottom.
Yeah, it’s petty, and I’d never admit it, but it’s brought me the slightest bit of joy to know that you ain’t found someone since me. But then again, it was your wrongdoing and your backstabbing that got you here in the first place.”
You know, just typical break up stuff…
And I’ve got to hand it to Muscadine Bloodline, this teaser has some very poetic moments. Especially in the second half of video, where Muncaster continues:
“I’ve heard of rubbing salt on a wound, but you poured a Boston Tea Party’s worth of salt in my heart. But ultimately, it turned in my favor, because I would have never met her if it hadn’t ended with you.
The more blindsided and brutal it is, tends to lead to a quicker reconciliation. Yeah I hear the stories, but I don’t embellish them, and they ain’t got nothing to do with me. Hell, at this point, I hope you’re happy.”
Boston Tea Party reference? Hell yeah Muscadine Bloodline. Hopefully they somehow fit the historical event into the lyrics of the new song.
And speaking of the song, we don’t actually hear any of the music in the teaser. All we are left with is the monologue from Muncaster, so it looks like we’ll have to wait a full week to really get to listen to “Low Hangin’ Fruit.”
