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.
You’d be hard-pressed to find two better vocalists on the planet.
Back in 2006, Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson honored Reba as part of her CMT Giants feature, singing her original duet with Linda Davis, “Does He Love You.”
The 1993 heartbreaker was also the lead single from Reba’s compilation album Greatest Hits Volume Two, and was written by Billy Stritch and Sandy Knox.
The song won the Grammy award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration, as well as the CMA award for Vocal Event of the Year. It also went #1 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart in 1993.
It tells the story of a love triangle, where two women know the man they love is being unfaithful to both of them and they go back and forth wondering and debating who he truly loves the most.
It’s one of the most classic country female duets of all-time, and Reba actually recreated it with her friend, Dolly Parton, earlier this year.
And somehow, I’d never come across this performance of Martina and Kelly before until recently, but good Lord… those two about blew the damn roof off the building.
You can even see it a few times in Reba’s face how impressive their performance is, and in my opinion, they certainly did the original justice… and that might even be an understatement.
They’re two powerhouse vocalists in their own right, but when you combine them on a song like this, it’s unbelievable how incredible it sounds:
