The moonshine is distilled in the ‘Moonshine Capital of the World’
To accompany her new single, five-time Golden Guitar nominee, Jayne Denham has partnered with Franklin County Distilleries, located in the mountains of Virginia, USA (known as the ‘Moonshine Capital of the World’) to release her own line of two different flavoured moonshines.
In an Instagram video, Denham shared, “We’re super excited to announce that I have my own two flavours of moonshine coming out thanks to these guys," she points at Franklin County Distilleries’ general manager Larry Lobmeyer. "Get ready. It’s going with the Moonshine album and the brand-new single. Woohoo!”
While a release date has yet to be announced, Denham assures the moonshine will be available in Australia “real soon” via her website.

The 80 proof 750ml bottles – which come in ‘ridge runner pear’ and ‘orchard peach’ varieties – features Denham on the label dressed in western style attire including leather pants, hat and jacket as well as hand crafted leather accessories by Buffalo Girl.
Denham’s next album, Moonshine, is due for release in late 2023, with the title single featuring American singer, rapper, and songwriter, Colt Ford set to drop on March 3.
Written by Colin Elmore, Cameron Jaymes and Melissa Pierce, and produced by Grammy-nominated songwriters and producers Brian Bunn and Brian White, Moonshine is a song with danceable melodies, wrapped in a love story, that will entice audiences globally.
Denham said, “When I first heard Moonshine, I knew it was the perfect fit for me, and I could immediately hear exactly how I wanted to sing it. Colt Ford is the perfect addition for the direction of the song, and to have him featured on it was the piece of the puzzle that fit so seamlessly.”
Ford said, "Being featured on Jayne's new song Moonshine is a true honour as well as bringing more of my music to the Australian country scene. Country roots run deep, and the spirit of the countryside can be found in every corner of the world, where hardworking and down-to-earth people come together to create community.”
“I am not the type of artist to write many love songs, but when I heard Moonshine, I knew if I was to write a love song, this was it,” Denham added.
Denham is one of Australia’s most admired and sought-after country rock performers. Her fifth studio album WANTED reached #1 on the ARIA Australian Country Album Chart. The album landed Denham two Golden Guitar Award nominations for ‘Female Artist of the Year’ and ‘Contemporary Album of the Year’ in 2021.
WANTED follows her previous albums Sudden Change in Weather (2008), Shake This Town (2010), Renegade (2013) and Calamity (2018). She has scored four #1 hit in Australia, six top 10 songs in the National Country Charts, twelve top 30 videos and six CMC nominations.
The country-rock singer-songwriter has been surrounded by music her entire life, having grown up in a family of singers and entertainers in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Notably, her mother, grandfather and aunties were all in musicals, and Denham started performing in family shows from around five-years-old. She credits her love of country music to her father, who would play it day in and day out.
