In the age of quarantine, livestream performances have been out saving grace. It’s allowed us to get a small taste of live music, hear a some new songs here and there, and stay connected to our favorite artists, but here we are two months into this thing and I’ll admit it… they’re going stale.
Don’t get me wrong, plenty of artists have been crushing it, but after a while, playing the same acoustic songs over and over in your living room just loses its luster.
And artists are adapting. We saw Cody Johnson get the full band together for a steam, Keith Urban did a drive in concert for fans, and now, the fellas from Whiskey Myers are heading to Billy Bob’s Texas for a full-production livestream concert.
“Our fans have been hungry for a streamed show for some time now, but we wanted to wait until we could do it right – so we really appreciate our friends at Miller Lite stepping in to help make that happen,” shares guitarist John Jeffers. “When you go live, in any instance, you never know what can happen. We always said Bill (Cody Tate) would wrestle a grizzly bear at a live show. So maybe this is his time to shine! Regardless, this is the longest streak in our career that we’ve been without playing a show so we’re just excited to all be back together and rockin’.”
As part of the Miller Lite #VirtualTipJar campaign that supports the industry via the USBG National Charity Foundation, fans are encouraged to show their bartenders support by visiting virtual-tips.org.
This Thursday, 7pm, come right back with a cold Miller Lite and buckle up for a live Whisky Myers show.
Whiskey Myers will also play two sold-out shows for drive-up attendees as part of the Texas Rangers’ recently announced “Concert in Your Car” event.
The band will take the stage directly in front of fans’ vehicles for back-to-back shows on Friday, June 5, as part of a four-night series of socially distant concerts.
They recently released a solo performance of Cody Cannon singing “Country Boy Can Survive” and holy moly if that ain’t a tall glass of FIRE.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
