In addition to celebrating Popcorn Sutton, “Moonshine” highlights the significant contribution that moonshine culture has made to society by pushing the limits and discovering new avenues of expression. The song’s rock and alternative rock vibe reflects the rebellious spirit and independence of this subculture art form.
Fans of Popcorn Sutton and the defiant tradition of moonshining will love Second Function’s “Moonshine,” which demonstrates the band’s commitment to storytelling via song.
