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.
The King covering The Hag…
If it gets better than this I haven’t found it…
A few years back at a show in Las Vegas, George Strait decided to honor the legend that is the great Merle Haggard while paying a guitar modeled after the one Merle himself played.
He broke out the all-time classic “Mama Tried” (is it even a Merle tribute if you don’t sing that one?) along with the fan-favorite “Working Man’s Blues.” Safe to say, the crowd was LOVING it.
I sure wouldn’t mind a George Strait Sings Merle album or something like that… just saying.
A tip of the cap to both of these legends… country music owes them more than what can be paid.
And then in 2018, he honored The Hag once again with “Sing Me Back Home,” in New Orleans.
