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.
If you enjoyed the first episode of Randy Travis’ documentary More Life, you’re in luck, because episode two is officially out as well.
This episode is all about how the famed country singer’s career kickstarted, as Martha Sharp, the former vice president of A&R, Warner Bros. Records, recalled the first time she discovered Travis.
Sure enough, Travis was the first artist Sharp had ever signed.
She was also the one who changed Randy’s stage name, which was originally Randy Ray, to Randy Travis.
The episode then transitions to Travis singing his 1988 hit song, “Deeper Than the Holler,” off of his Old 8×10 album at his show celebrating the 25th anniversary of his Storms of Life album.
The episode also touches on the country singer’s battle with viral cardiomyopathy, which ultimately led to his stroke that initially made him unable to walk and talk.
