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.
Here’s to the great Naomi Judd.
This past weekend, Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town brought their co-headlining The Bandwagon 2022 Tour to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, just outside of Houston, Texas.
And among the usual classics, they took the opportunity to honor the late Naomi Judd during the encore with a performance “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Old Days).”
Written by Jamie O’Hara, it was recorded by The Judds and released in January 1986 as the second single from the album, Rockin’ with the Rhythm.
in 1987, the song took home a Grammy Award for The Judds in Country Duo/Vocal Group category, as well as one for O’Hara in the Country Songwriting category.
Following the performance, Jaren Johnston, the frontman of the opening act, The Cadillac Three, joined them for a cover of The Beatles hit, “Let It Be.”
