Drew Moreland has just shown us what country music is supposed to sound like with his upcoming, self-titled, debut album. You can tell Moreland has taken a few notes from the original outlaws as he sings with grit and conviction in his voice. He’s able to take his daily struggles and turn them into damn fine country songs.
“Drew’s self-titled album was recorded in the single-wide trailer where he lives with his family in Marion, TX. This project has a darker/grittier tone and covers some more serious subject matter than previously released singles.”
Drew told us that the writing process for the upcoming album was mixed, mostly co-written with Garland Lee Wenner and Matthew Parker. But, also includes material that Drew wrote while spending time on the road alone: “Road Stone”, “Prayer of an Outlaw” & “North Wind”.
The official release date is August 1st, however if you’d like to pre-order Drew’s new album, you will get the digital version on July 28th as well as the CD in the mail around August 1st.
The Final Word
Nine tracks that are reassuring to the sustainment of outlaw, country music during a strange time where new country songs sound more like pop songs.

ABOUT DREW MORELAND
Despite growing up in San Antonio, now the 7th largest city in the United States, Drew's life was grounded by his parents who both came from a small farming community. From an early age, he enjoyed listening to music and playing it came naturally. Drew currently resides in Marion, TX.
Drew Moreland and the Neon Hustle got its start in the spring of 2016 as a songwriting project between Drew and his brother-in-law Garland (Lee) Wenner. At the time, there were no intentions to actually start a band. It wasn’t until Drew was invited to play country music at a summer event that a band materialized to play some of the songs they had written.
Drew Moreland and The Neon Hustle played over 250 live performances in 2017.
