Whiskey Myers Essentials
The good ol’ boys in Whiskey Myers have been holding down the Red Dirt scene since the late 2000s, with a little bit of country sentiment and whole lotta rock ’n’ roll swagger. These Southerners tap into Lynyrd Skynyrd’s guitar-hero spirit while leaning hard toward the twang. They embrace both sounds while feeling free to add the flourishes of a gospel rave-up—the claps and the choir and the soul-replenishing organ—or an occasional big, dirty blues riff. And they celebrate their Texas roots, too, through tunes like “Ballad of a Southern Man,” a personal and vivid vision of growing up in the Lone Star State.
