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.
Talk about a classic.
On this date in 1985, the late, great Ray Charles and Willie Nelson were topping the country charts with their timeless, signature duet, “Seven Spanish Angels”.
Written by Troy Seals and Eddie Setser, it was first released in November 1984 as a single from Charles’ 1984 album Friendship, and Willie also included it on his 1985 compilation album Half Nelson.
It was the most successful of Ray’s eight hits on the country chart, as the single spent one week #1 one and a total of twelve weeks on the country chart.
It’s such a powerful and beautiful duet, and seeing the two of them perform it together is truly something special:
