Country music is the lifeblood of Whiskey Riff, and we pride ourselves on standing firmly in the corner of the independent artists, and those few in the mainstream still doing it the right way. Whether it’s Waylon, Willie and legends of the past, or superstars in the making like Zach Bryan, our finger is always on the pulse of true country music. From Texas to Tennessee, Appalachia to Bakersfield, Whiskey Riff is THE unapologetic voice of the country music fan.
A RIFF on what makes the great outdoors…great.
“Country” is more than just a steel guitar. It’s a lifestyle. A mindset. A cold beer, hot grill and the great outdoors. A lifestyle so perfectly captured by the country greats of yesterday, but still alive and well today in artists who truly get it.
Whiskey Riff is that lifestyle.
Say goodbye to boredom.
The best playlists in country music…period.
On ‘Whiskey Riff Raff,’ Steve Gazibara and Wes Langeler give an unfiltered and unapologetic take on country music, life, and all the craziness that comes with it. Laugh with us. Rant with us. Drink with us.
As even Kacey Musgraves will tell you, it’s nearly, if not completely impossible to pick just one favorite from country music legend George Strait.
Even choosing between just his 60 number ones seems an infeasible task. In this video, she explains how, as a native Texan herself, he has inspired her career and influenced her music.
Ultimately, she settles on his 50th number one single, “She’ll Leave You with a Smile”.
Written by Odie Blackmon and Jay Knowles, it was released on Strait’s 2002 The Road Less Traveled record.
Check out this performance from his first live album For the Last Time: Live From the Astrodome in 2003.
