"The Shootouts mix supple Western swing with brash barroom country to A-plus results. Chuck Mead, a torchbearer for such vintage sounds, produced the group’s upcoming album Bullseye — it’s a match made in honky-tonk heaven."
Rolling Stone Country
"The Shootouts effectively straddle the line between being a uniquely sounding outfit yet feeling as comfortable as an old friend from the first moment you hear them. (Bullseye is) everything Quick Draw promised and more."
"If you want something done right, you go to the experts. So if you want some vintage honky-tonk, you go to The Shootouts."
The Shootouts are Ohio’s preeminent throwback honky-tonk band, and they’ve just released their latest album Bullseye produced by Chuck Mead. (It) illustrates the band’s ability to work within classic country themes yet still feel fresh and relevant to today... The Shootouts and Bullseye are fire.
Saving Country Music
(The Shootouts) pull from many different threads and construct a beautiful garment.
A band I’ve just fallen in love with.
