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.
Kelly Clarkson is delivering another fantastic cover of a Dolly Parton song.
She recently honored the queen of country at the ACM Awards last week with a stunning rendition of “I Will Always Love You”, and today, she’s bringing it with a cover of “Jolene” on her Kellyoke segment.
Kelly covers country songs quite often on her show, too, and has done tons of classics over the years like Willie Nelson’s “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain”, Travis Tritt’s “Here’s A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” and even Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire”, among plenty of other great ones.
And every single time, she nails it… her voice is just a once in a lifetime voice, and I would seriously listen to her sing the phone book if I could.
I say it every time I write about Kelly signing a country song, but I really hope she’ll consider doing a real deal country album one day.
I mean, c’mon, this is proof that it would wipe the floor with 90% of mainstream country these days:
