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.
“Take Me Home, Country Roads” may be one of the most recognizable songs of all time, to anybody across any genre of music.
Seriously, I know people who think of country music as the work of the devil, and still love some good ol’ “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
And how can you not?
It’s a feel-gooder about the gorgeous scenery the countryside has to offer, and it’s easy on the ears.
John Denver dropped the song on his 1971 Poems, Prayers and Promises, and has quickly become a timeless classic, with tons of artists covering the hit.
With that being said, I’ve never seen a cover as unique as this one before, coming from Luca Stricagnoli, a world-renown acoustic guitarist from Italy.
In this video he recently dropped on YouTube, he plays “Take Me Home, Country Roads” strictly on his acoustic guitar, which has a slide guitar neck attached to it as well.
He doesn’t sing a single verse from the song, but he doesn’t need to, as the notes on the slide neck perfectly handle the vocal.
If you’ve ever at least fiddled with a guitar in the past, then you know just how incredibly difficult this is.
