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.
Sam Elliott has one of the most recognizable voices in movie history.
That voice, his roles, hell even his commercials, have made the actor the icon he is today. But, it didn’t come easy and it required a ton of work and perseverance.
He was asked what “being a man” meant to him on The Off Camera Show, and he went in-depth.
Sam grew up doing quite a bit of fishing.
Speaking of those men, Elliott says “They were pretty hardcore…they were gentlemen, they weren’t assholes, but they were hardcore.”
His dad worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, spending all of his time outdoors, and taking Sam on a ton of trips before tragically dying of a heart attack in his mother’s arms.
Not surprisingly, his dad was a bit of a hardass and hated the idea of Elliott taking his shot at acting – it was a big motivator.
Here’s the full clip.
