Whiskey Myers Announce Extensive Live Nation "Ones To Watch" Tour, Presented by SiriusXM Outlaw Country

Nov 29 | Posted by: Whiskey Myers

Whiskey Myers has confirmed an extensive Live Nation "Ones To Watch" Tour in 2017. This announcement follows the 2016 release of the 'Mud,' which was recorded with Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Country Charts in September while receiving praise from Rolling Stone, Texas Monthly, Vice Noisey and more (see below). The tour includes dates all around the country, including stops in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and is presented by SiriusXM Outlaw Country.

Listen to "Lightning Bugs and Rain," which just hit #1 on the Texas Radio Charts: youtu.be/64EhA2XveRg,

 'Mud' is a natural extension of the band's raucous live sound and their dedicated approach to songcraft, from the ominous backroads buildup of album opener "On The River" to the screaming guitars on the Rich Robinson (Black Crowes) co-write "Frogman," a desert-rock blues told from the perspective of a Navy SEAL missing the comforts of his southern home. Lead singer Cody Cannon emerges as a startlingly versatile songwriter, equally adept at writing a rollicking tribute to the country gateway drug that is Hank Williams ("Hank") or a stately piano ballad that climaxes in a smoking hot twin guitar solo ("Stone"). And "Trailer We Call Home" proves Cannon has a gift for painting a portrait of working class struggles and the redemptive power of home.
