NASHVILLE, TN (June 10, 2013) - Country band LiveWire releases its single "Whiskey Sunday" via CDX Volume #572, and digitally at CD Tex (www.CDTex.com). Fans can stream the song at Roughstock.com and buy it now at iTunes .
"Whiskey Sunday," written by Joe Romano and Jason Vanover, is a song about love, loss and despair. With some music critics drawing comparisons of the song to the sounds of the Marshall Tucker Band and The Eagles, "Whiskey Sunday" showcases the musical and vocal talents of the members of LiveWire who play and sing their own parts in the studio. Produced by Justin Woods, the single is the latest from LiveWire's critically acclaimed 2012 album, LIVIN' on Way Out West Records.
LiveWire features Bobby DeGonia (lead guitar/harmony vocals), Andy Eutsler (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Danny Bell (rhythm guitar/harmony vocals), Cory Shultz (fiddle/harmony vocals), Landon Rolfe (bass guitar) and newest member Brad Allen (drums). From its home base of Joplin, Mo., LiveWire has established itself as a top-shelf live band whose music has been embraced by mainstream Country, Texas/Red Dirt and Southern Rock music fans alike.
After a recent concert appearance at The Vanguard in Tulsa, The Current magazine raved: "These six young men put on one hell of a performance; between their music and their animation on the stage, it proved to be very, very entertaining." From performing with "Red Dirt" favorites the Casey Donahew Band, Bo Phillips, and the Red Dirt Rangers to shows with Toby Keith, Kix Brooks and LeAnn Rimes, LiveWire has forged a strong connection with fans which cut across several music labels. The band has upcoming shows with rising Texas star Kyle Park and one of LiveWire's influences, Southern Rock legends, the Marshall Tucker Band.
The core members of LiveWire have been performing together for over a decade. "We honed our playing and singing chops in honkytonks and VFW Halls in the four-state areas of Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas where we are all from," says band founder and guitarist, DeGonia. "In the beginning, we were a Western Swing band. Bob Wills, Merle Haggard, Ray Price - those were our heroes. They could pick and sing really well, and we tried real hard to emulate them. Later on, we moved toward a more rockin,' edgy Country and Southern Rock sound. Our music has evolved over the years, and our fans have followed us. We are grateful for our fans!"

Since forming in the mid-'90s, LiveWire has forged a reputation as one of the top-draw live acts in the Midwest by regularly packing venues in the band's home state of Missouri and in the surrounding states of Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. Along the way, the sextet has performed all across America and on the hallowed stage of The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville as national finalists in the 2009 Colgate Country Showdown. LiveWire released a self-titled EP in 2011 which included its debut radio single, "Tater Fed," a stirring backwoods rocker that quickly became the band's anthem. After signing with Way Out West Records, the band released a video for "Tater Fed" and a single and video of "Miracle Of The Human Spirit," which benefited the group's storm-ravaged hometown of Joplin, Missouri, struck by an EF-5 tornado in the spring of 2011. LiveWire released its debut album LIVIN' in late 2012. With other singles including "Gone" and "Lies," LiveWire's music has found success at Country radio, both in the U.S. and in Europe, and its videos have received airplay on CMT Pure, The Country Network, Yallwire and other outlets.
