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.
Talk about a core memory made. And talk about giving fans yet another reason to love the already beloved performer.
Zach Bryan truly is one of a kind.
Zach took the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, a few nights ago, putting on yet another incredible show.

After his incredible set, he made a young girl’s dreams come true. From the guardrail, he spotted her sign on stage that read:
“‘Headed South’ for my very first concert.”
After the show concluded, Zach made his way over to her section, carrying his guitar case. He stopped in front of where the girl was and pointed at the crowd, intent that the gift was the get to her.
What was the gift?
The guitar he played on that night.
As he passes it to the girl, she is crying, and her disbelief and excitement are incredible. It’s a mix of “What just happened?” and “How is this real?”
Her mom went to TikTok asking folks at the show to share video footage of the moment, and they delivered. She captioned the footage of the guitar being passed to her daughter:
“Thank you for the core memories Zach Bryan and for making this girl’s world! She’s absolutely SHOOK!
“She’ll NEVER forget her FIRST concert (her bucket list concert), and neither will I! My mom heart is so full, and I’m SO thankful!”
