Whisky Outlaws are a Neo-Traditional Country act based out of Joplin, MO. Whisky Outlaws formed in late 2019 on the cusp of the pandemic, after founding members Thaddaeus Morton and Corey Reagin relocated to Southwest Missouri from Montana and Georgia, respectively, earlier that year. They have since toured extensively throughout Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas clocking nearly 400 shows in the process.
Morton and Reagin offer up conversational lyrics and drum-tight harmonies coupled with twangy hooks and b-bender riffs to create a sound that harkens back to a golden age of country while looking ahead to blaze a trail all their own.
Along the way, Whisky Outlaws has shared the stage with artists such as Shenandoah, Tanner Usrey, Trey Lewis, Kevin Galloway of Uncle Lucius, Vincent Neil Emmerson, Josh Meloy, and Ragland.
