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.

Another member of the Tiger King cast has passed away.
The Oklahoma City Police Department announced that Jeff Johnson, who was the reptile dealer in Tiger King, died by suicide on September 8th, according to E! News.
A copy of the police report states the heartbreaking details of his death as Johnson’s wife told police that they had gotten into an argument in their garage, and he then shot himself in front of her.
When emergency services arrived, Johnson still had a pulse and was rushed to a hospital, where the 58-year-old was pronounced dead.
The medical examiner also listed the death as suicide.
Johnson appeared on Season 1 of Tiger King where he discussed Carole Baskin’s lawsuit against Joe Exotic.
His death was only five days after the death of Erik Cowie, who passed away due to acute and chronic alcohol use. Cowie was a zookeeper at Joe’s zoo.
Joe himself was also recently transferred to a North Carolina medical facility for inmates to treat his prostate cancer.
Tiger King 2 was recently released to Netflix.
