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.
Sturgill Simpson is one of those rare talents that can hold any size crowd in the palm of his hand.
Back in 2015, Simpson was performing at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium when he busted out a cover of Roy Orbison’s “Crying” when a couple of drunk fools put a halt to the show.
** crowd erupts **
** Sturgill stare-down from hell **
Sturg doesn’t seem like the type of guy you want to piss off. In the end, he delivered a great cover, even with the interruption.
Watch it go down.
And the original, in 1965.
