Shotgun Jefferson Interview
by Nigel Sharpe for Country Music News International
Shotgun Jefferson is a Southern California-based country band that draws its musical inspiration from its rock and roll roots. Fronted by Jeff Zazueta, their high-energy, danceable songs transcend age and resonate with a large audience. Self-described “non-country” fans have become converts of their California Country Style – powerful vocals coupled with guitar solos and blended harmonies. In 2020, Shotgun Jefferson won the award for Country Band of the Year for the JMA’s.
No stranger to the spotlight, Shotgun Jefferson has shared bills with country superstars like Lindsay Ell, The Lacs, Brooke Eden, Moonshine Bandits, Jordan Rager, Jessica Lynn, and Pop Acts Missing Persons and Bow Wow Wow, Aaron Watson, Meghan Lindsey, & Confederate Railroad.
