2017/2018 Season 7 Update: Now that Josh and Bill are still on the outs and Jim Tom didn’t work out for Josh we are going to see a lot more of Josh and Cutie Pie looking for a new partner. In the current season you will see Josh potentially work with Mark and Digger as well as others. Who do you want to se Josh team up with to make moonshine this year?
Jim Tom has joined Josh after Josh and Bill split up their business relationship. Check out the highlights of the 2015/2016 with Jim and Josh here. This is an exciting season as it puts together two different generations of Moonshiners. Josh is trying to create an insulated mash room so he and Jim Tom can make Moonshine throughout the entire winter.
In a time when TV stars are all over Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat there are others that are out in the wilderness trying to make a living. The Discovery Channel has highlighted different ways to make money and one of their most popular shows in Moonshiners. This resource will highlight and answer some questions about Josh and Bill from South Carolina. If you know them, please feel free to comment below.
Will Josh and Bill running into so much legal trouble will they need an experienced DUI defense lawyer or what type of legal representation? It seems that every season they are skating on thin ice when it comes to the law and legal issues. Does anyone know if Josh and Bill have a lawyer from the Spartanburg area?
Bill Drunk on Moonshiners
In the latest Moonshiners show (January 2015) on Discovery TV Bill is completely drunk after drinking all night and into the next day. The show starts with Bill completely blitzed. Josh is making fun of him as he tries to get his moonshine from the still site to closer to home. There are some hilarious takes with Bill being drunk. Something that made me laugh extremely hard was Bill lights a cigarette with a blow torch. Who does this?
The have two three hundred gallon tanks of moonshine in their stash hole in the ground. In one of the previous shows they dug out this hole so they could put “money in the ground”. At one point they had an old Chevy Z71 pickup truck on top of the stash. They smartened up and decided to get a Bobcat to better camouflage their moonshine.
I am certain we will see many more outtakes of Bill being drunk on Moonshiners as this was one of the funnier scenes I have consumed. He was even playing with Josh’s dog “Cutie Pie”. Here is a good video of Josh taking Cutie Pie on her first motorcycle ride.Does anyone know what kind of dog Cutie Pie is?
As more “drunk Bill” scenes play out on Moonshiners I will document them here. I may even do some Vine videos and search for some YouTube videos. Let me know if you find anything good.
Where in South Carolina are Josh and Bill From?
UPDATE: Josh and Bill are from the Spartanburg, South Carolina area. If you have more information on the exact part of Spartanburg or the upstate area they are from please comment below.
I have completed some research and I have been unable to figure out where Josh and Bill are from. I would imagine they are from the northeastern part of South Carolina near North Carolina and Jim Tom’s territory of Graham County. When watching most of the shows with Josh and Bill they are in wooded areas with rhododendron bushes. This tells me they are in the upstate area and nowhere near the coast like in Myrtle Beach or Charleston. There might be some shows in the future that have Josh and Bill going to Columbia or Charleston but I am quite sure this is not where they are from.
If you know the town or county where Josh and Bill are from please feel free to comment below as my readers and I would like to know. As the shows progress maybe I can catch a road sign or a landmark that will tell me where these two reside.
Do Josh and Bill have Twitter, Facebook or Instagram?
There are plenty of fake Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts for both Josh and Bill. From my research, I was unable to find any verified accounts. This makes sense as social media is the last thing these guys want. All it will do is bring attention to their moonshine and the location in which they make it. If you find a social media account for either of these two you can almost guarantee it is fake or a fan page.
There are literally hundreds of Facebook fan pages for the different Moonshiners. Josh and Bill are no different. There are a few Instagram accounts that claim to be Josh and Bill but remember there are no verified accounts so do not think they are real. I would suggest following the accounts and taking what they share with a grain of salt.
Snapchat is the latest social media app that has gotten popular and it may very well be the case that Josh has Snapchat. He is one of the youngest of all the actors on Moonshiners so he could very well Snapchat some of his friends. From my knowledge, most of those in small towns do not use Snapchat all that much. If you have Snapchatted with Josh please feel free to tell your story in the comments below.
Silver Travis Band and Copperline Song on Moonshiners
Josh Owens, one of the stars of Moonshiners, is good friends with the lead guitarist of the Silver Travis Band, John Gillie. As most diehard Moonshiners fans know, there are plenty of unique tunes that end up on the show. Jim Tom has been trying to get a hit in Nashville for years and all the other Moonshiners love their country or bluegrass music.
In the near future, there is a good chance we will hear the song Copperline on Moonshiners as the Silver Travis Band is based out of Spartanburg, South Carolina. You can find out much more about them here. They started playing at The Bowery in Myrtle Beach, which was once home to the popular country music band Alabama. The Silver Travis Band is still working on the deal to have their song on Moonshiners but it is something that could happen in the near future. There has been a heavy focus on Josh and Bill in this season of Moonshiners so listen for the song Copperline. If you would like to buy the song you can find it here on iTunes. You can also listen to this interview to get a full overview on the song and the negotiations with the Discovery Channel and the Moonshiners show.
Josh and Bill Arrested in the Season Finale?
In the commercials for the season finale it shows the police chasing down and arrested Josh with handcuffs on him. I will continue to look into this development. Does anyone else know if Josh and Bill have been arrested for moonshine recently?
