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.
That’s that for the second round of our George Strait Number Ones voting.
After thousands of votes have been cast so far, we finally have our Sweet Sixteen.
And I’ve gotta be honest: Most of the matchups in the last round weren’t even close.
We had “Blue Clear Sky” getting bounced by “I Can Still Make Cheyenne,” which got a nice 69% of the vote. And “The Best Day” managed to get 33% of the vote, but still got beat handily by “Run.”
And those were two of the closer matchups.
I’m talking margins of victory like “Troubadour” getting 80% of the vote against “It Just Comes Natural” – and Troubadour wasn’t even a number one.
But the biggest victory came from “Carrying Your Love With Me,” which beat “Today My World Slipped Away” with an astounding 91% of the vote.
Seems like these matchups were too easy for y’all.
Well, most of them. There were two that came down to the wire: “She’ll Leave You With a Smile” hung in there all day, before eventually losing to “Give It Away” by around 5%.
And the closest battle of the day was between “Baby Blue” and “Baby’s Gotten Good At Goodbye,” with “Baby’s Gotten Good At Goodbye” sneaking through by less than 2%.
So let’s see if this next round is any tougher.
Voting for the next round is open until 11:59 PM central time on Sunday, and as always, you can vote as many times as you want.
