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, the game on and the great outdoors. A lifestyle and culture so perfectly captured by the country greats of yesterday, but still alive and well today.
Whiskey Riff is that lifestyle.
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.
I mean… I’m here for it.
It’s really not a secret that Post Malone is a country music fan.
His love for Shania is second to none, we’ve seen him jam out with Dwight Yoakam and Billy Strings, play some Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, hang out with Luke and Carrie, and he even rocked a Dolly Parton suit at Bonnaroo, I mean, the guy probably knows more about classic country than half the artists in the mainstream right now.
And don’t even get me started on his cover of Sturgill Simpson ‘s “You Can Have The Crown.”
But when it comes to actually making music, the fans have been begging for it for years, but will we ever see a true Post Malone country collab? Not just on stage, but in a recording studio?
If Post has it his way, we will.
And his dream collaborator? None other than the King himself, Mr. George Strait.
In more than one interview, including this one from quite a few years ago,
Post has mentioned that he would love to collaborate with George, and he also mentioned Toby Keith as another country star he’d like to work with.
“I put myself on country whenever I started playing guitar, I’m gonna get a rhinestone suit.
I wanna work with George Strait, Toby Keith… there’s too many people.”
His song “Deja Vu” even offers a subtle nod to George with the line:
“Girl this a confession, I’m not like your exes, I came in from Texas…”
In this interview from a few years back, Post discusses his desire to collab with George, Toby and his love for country music in general.
Watch this jam session with Dwight and don’t even try to tell me that a Post/Strait collab wouldn’t be fire.
