I am absolutely AMAZED by Whiskey Myers stage shows, and trust me I have been around them many times. My last encounter with them was this past summer during Tumbleweed in Kansas City, where they played a few songs from their forthcoming self titled fifth album to be out September 27th.
The first single they released was called “Die Rockin” and was exclusively released by Rolling Stone:
“I wrote Die Rockin’ with the legendary Ray Wylie Hubbard [writer of the beer-stained classic Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother], and it really sums up this rock ‘n’ roll life of ours,” says frontman Cody Cannon “We’re consumed by music and are such fans of the legends that came before us.
“We’re out there on the road and in the studio trying to pay homage to those greats that have inspired this generation while we strive to create some magic of our own.”
Now, the reason it’s self titled is because this album is totally produced by the band themselves and the band wrote and co wrote every song on this album overall. I’m listening now on Spotify to “Houston County Sky”, which is adorned with a sweet sounding steel guitar and has a nice Red Dirt flavor to it. I’m VERY hopeful for this album overall, and I’m sure Mr. Joshua already has it for review.
This new album includes other co writers than Mr. Ray Wylie Hubbard including Mr. Brent Cobb on “Running”, Mr. Adam Hood on the song “Rolling Stone” and Tn Jet on the song “Bury My Bones”. It’s really crazy how many of these bands are collaborating on each other’s albums just like many of our favorite Country Music Legends did years ago.
Whiskey Myers will have a cameo on the new Paramount Network TV series “Yellowstone” starring Kevin Costner. The bands music will be featured in 4 episodes of the series first season. The Paramount Network will also do an exclusive recap video using the Whiskey Myers song “Stone.” The recap will air on VH1’s top 20 countdown.
