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.
Thomas Rainwater can pick.
Gil Birmingham is an accomplished actor who’s primarily known for his role as Tribal Chairman Thomas Rainwater in the Paramount Network’s television series Yellowstone.
However, you can find him in other Taylor Sheridan projects including Wind River, Hell or Highwater, as well as in the Twilight Saga, and more.
But he also knows his way around the guitar.
Back in 2010, at the Native American Music Awards, Gil joined New York blues picker Jimmy Wolf for a cover of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride & Joy.”
And he crushed it.
Released in 1983, “Pride & Joy” was the lead single from SRV’s 1983 album, Texas Flood.
Between Grammy-winning musician Ryan Bingham (who plays Walker), Kevin Costner having his own band Modern West, Gil being a pretty good blues picker, and Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton) looking to kickstart his career in country music, it sounds like Yellowstone has a one hellvua company band in the works.
