Pillbox Patti Celebrates her Redneck Roots On New Track: “Die A Redneck”

Nashville, Tenn. – Monument Records recording artist and celebrated songwriter, Pillbox Patti, has released her latest single “Die A Redneck,” available now. 

After a year of traveling the country, opening for artist like Jelly Roll, Koe Wetzel,and Old Crow Medicine Show, Pillbox Patti is on her way to achieving her dreams. Growing up in Stark, Florida, where all there was to do was “eat, pray, and do drugs,” the songwriter has worked her whole life to get to this moment. Though she always wanted to get out of that small town, she is proud of where she came from…and she’s not changing for anyone.

On the new track, the always authentic, GRAMMY nominated, singer proudly claims her roots, and shares the reality of growing up in the country. On “Die A Redneck,” she sings:

No matter how rich I live 
Still gonna be a broke ass bitch 
Even with 
A couple commas on a paycheck
I was born to die a redneck

About Pillbox Patti:

No one puts Patti in a corner. After years of writing for other artists, including Ashley McBryde’s “One Night Standards,” award-winning songwriter Nicolette Hayford finally gets to be the artist she’s wanted to be for years. The ten-year town put Nicolette into a box as only one idea. So, she ventured off with her tribe of writers and entered metamorphoses, emerging as Pillbox Patti with a project and tone that captures everything she wants to convey: a fresh, authentic take on growing up in her Country. It’s crystallized through the lens of a Florida native delivering her youth and adulthood in an honest, spirited, not always pretty, package in her debut album Florida.

Last year, Patti took to the road with Jelly Roll and Ashley McBryde. As a writer and featured artist on the GRAMMY-nominated Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, she’s spreading her version of country music throughout the format. In 2023 she will be out with Koe Wetzel.

Called “fearless and open-hearted” by Billboard, with Forbes stating that Pillbox Patti is “breaking genre barriers,” and the Tennessean saying she “blends timeless country, hip-hop, and rock sounds with frank conversations about American life,” it’ll be impossible to box Pillbox Patti in after you’ve listened to her debut project, Florida.
