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.
HOT TAKE ALERT.
Alright look, I know Chris Stapleton is pretty much the cat’s ass when it comes to covering songs, and with that voice, you’d be hard pressed to argue with it.
Just a quick look at his discography and you see covers of Willie Nelson, George Jones/David Allan Coe, Charlie Daniels, Guy Clark, John Fogerty and more.
BUT… if you look at Whitey Morgan’s, he takes on some CLASSICS… and he absolutely CRUSHES them.
We’re talking Bruce Springsteen, ZZ Top, Merle Haggard, Johnny Paycheck, Dale Watson… just to name a few.
Here’s a few of my favorites:
“Waitin’ Round To Die” – Townes Van Zandt
“Just Got Paid” – ZZ Top
“I’m On Fire” – Bruce Springsteen
“Dead Flowers” – The Rolling Stones
“That’s How I Got To Memphis” – Tom T. Hall
