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.
On this date in 2014, a man who deserves more credit finally got some.
Ronnie Milsap was inducted to the Country Music Hall of fame on October 26th, 2014, along side Hank Cochran and Mac Wiseman.
Among his career accomplishments are 35 #1s (fourth to only George Strait, Conway Twitty and Merle Haggard), 6 Grammys, 4 ACMs, 8 CMAs and 35 million albums sold.
His biggest hits include “Smoky Mountain Rain,” “Stranger In My House,” “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It For The World,” and “No Gettin’ Over Me,” which were some of the biggest songs of the early ’80s.
Even at the age of 78, Ronnie is still active, having released a full-studio album earlier this year titled Wild Honey.
Cheers to a legend.
