Reckless? Maybe. Out of control? They'd tell tell you so. Playing to a hungry, rapidly growing fan base, Whiskey Myers are quickly becoming a staple that many music fans cannot live without.
A true southern rock group, with deep East Texas roots, Whiskey Myers are giving us the kind of music that many fans thought was lost with the end of the 70's. This band is taking a real, raw, no-frills approach to music. It's not about country music, or any genre really, it's about the purity of the lyrics, and the honest understanding of musicianship and crafted melodies. Whiskey Myers' music tells the story of real life in Texas, and these guys let you know first hand. Whiskey Myers are in fact, the real deal.
Taking cues from the music they grew up on, Whiskey Myers show signs of those influences through their songs. One listen and you can hear touches of Dylan soul, Skynyrd energy, the pulse of Zeppelin, and the honesty of Haggard.
With two full-length albums under their belts, Whiskey Myers are undeniably becoming the next act to break it big from this rich breading ground of music we call Texas.
"I think we are a little bit more rock and roll than most people on the scene. We're left of center definitely." Cody Cannon's thoughts on the band couldn't be more right on. They do rock, and they are edgy, and God definitely broke the mold when he created this band. A constantly evolving and maturing act, Whiskey Myers posses elements that many acts strive years to attain.
As you venture out into the balmy Texas summer nights this year, and find yourself looking for a rocking, bluesy show, check out Whiskey Myers like I did at Rockin' Rodeo in Denton, or at any one of the other great Texas venues along their tour schedule. But, if you cannot make a tour date, make it a point to add the bands albums Road of Life, and Firewater to your regular rotation. As with many things in life, adding a little Whiskey Myers to your diet, will easily fill a void you never knew existed.
Here in Texas, we work for what we have, and for bands like Whiskey Myers, who travel the long roads, setup and sound check hours before show time, and inspire the fans, well, I guess thats something they do understand. This is Texas Red Dirt Roads.
