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.
While an argument could be made that too many songs are released from an album before the whole thing comes out, I do love getting new Cody Johnson music as often as we have been.
Leading up to his 18-song double album Human, (announced on the Whiskey Riff Podcast, NBD) which we now know is coming out on October 8th, Cody has been steadily releasing 2 songs every few weeks and today. we got two more, including another song full of wisdom called “Treasure.”
Cody is no stranger to putting his opinion out there, whether it’s good ole fashioned advice on how to treat a woman, how to best live your life or his view on current political situations.
This latest song, written by Matt Rogers, contains some more life pointers, putting the old saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” in much more poetic terms.
“A beat-up gut string tucked behind some TVs
Like a pawn shop castaway
Started strumming little nothings
I fell in love with the way it played
Put aside the way that some things shimmer
Beauty’s in the heart and not the eye
Rust is just another shade of silver
Not all treasure has to shine
When I told you that I wished
I could’ve put a bigger diamond on your band
You said your love’s worth more than any stone you could ever put on my hand”
Add this to the long list of songs you and your kids should listen too…
Cody Johnson, ladies and gentlemen.
