We've mastered the art of rationalizing a trip to the bar. It goes something like this: "The sun's up, let's celebrate with a beer." But we scarcely need an excuse to hit the tavern when Hayshaker Jones is playing town. Broken hearts are the only impetus for downing shots that's better than this band's raucous, hard-charging outlaw country. Hayshaker Jones, often found on the Beachland's stage, can pull off the aching ballad as well as the ballsy barnburner, and it's all delivered with the sting of their whiskey muse.
