Christmas is a time for homecomings, and one of the Azalea City’s most promising country acts, Muscadine Bloodline, will be returning for a special holiday performance.

In just a year, this Nappie Award winner has shown it has the drive and sound to breakout beyond the Southeast. Comprising Charlie Muncaster and Gary Stanton, Muscadine Bloodline has had a very productive year, touring the Midwest and opening for Luke Combs at Atlanta’s Buckhead Theatre.

The biggest news from the Muscadine Bloodline camp is the release of the single “WD-40,” which has already earned the duo a presence on the iTunes’ country chart. This contemporary country ballad is grounded in acoustic guitars with down-home vocal harmonies. The emotional power of the song is delivered through sporadic trips into the world of rock. The Soul Kitchen crowd can expect to hear this track as well as “Porch Swing Angel” and other favorites.
