Yep, new music Friday just got that much better.
Charles Wesley Godwin has established himself as arguably the hottest vocalist and songwriter out of Appalachia at the moment, and the West Virginian isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
CWG is known for singing about personal life experiences and true events, like his new song he has in the works titled “The Flood,” which was inspired by the torrential flooding that plagued his home state back in 1985, and even fictional stories that have a storyline so good, you’d think you were watching a movie.
Needless to say, his music will hit every ounce of emotion you’ve got, and that’s why he’s been able to garner a massive following in such a short period of time.
Not to mention, the guy even made his Grand Ole Opry debut last week to kick off 2023 in the best way possible.
And for tomorrow?
Godwin is dropping a five song EP, titled Live From The Church.
The EP is the perfect mix of both covers, as well as his own songs.
It’ll feature his own songs “Lyin’ Low,” “Jesse,” and “Temporary Town,” all from his 2021 How the Mighty Fall project, one of our personal favorites here at Whiskey Riff.
The EP will also feature a cover of songwriting legend Chris Knight’s “The Jealous Kind,” which Godwin released a couple weeks back. There will also be a cover of Zach Bryan’s “Crooked Teeth,” straight from his 2020 Quiet, Heavy Dreams EP.
This oughta be a good’n.
