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.
Just add some more hardware to the Randy Travis collection.
Travis was a generational talent back in the ’80s and early ’90s, and he recently even added to the arsenal after dropping a handful of unreleased songs on his 35th anniversary Storms of Life album.
CMT announced today that he’s won the “Artist of a Lifetime” award for this year’s “CMT Artists of the Year” ceremony.
Needless to say, he’s in good hands, as country idols such as Reba, Loretta Lynn, Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers, and Merle Haggard have won the award previously.
Travis shared his thoughts on winning the award:
“To think you receive a Lifetime Achievement award for sharing your heart with the world through music is really beyond words of gratitude.
CMT has been so good to me throughout my career and I’m happy they believe I gave something in return. I’m blessed and most thankful.”
Much deserved Mr. Travis, much deserved.
The ceremony will be held live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Wednesday, October 13 at 9p/8c on CMT.
