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.
Miranda Lambert is one of the most respected country artists in the genre today, and for good reason… she’s as talented as they come.
Back in 2017, Lambert, who is a Texas native herself, tipped the cap to another Texas country legend, Waylon Jennings.
‘I Ain’t Living Long Like This’ was originally a Rodney Crowell song that Waylon Jennings did in 1979. His version went to number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart.
Now I’m not sure if Waylon Jennings ever had the chance to meet Miranda Lambert, but you’d have to imagine he’d approve of that cover and the decision to stick it to country radio.
Keep doing you, Miranda.
