CATOOSA – Called “the real damn deal” in Esquire magazine, Texas-based Whiskey Myers is bringing its red dirt show to the stage on April 2 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
Tickets start at $25.50 and go on sale Dec. 19.
Made up of lead singer and guitarist Cody Cannon, guitarist Cody Tate, guitarist John Jeffers, drummer Jeff Hogg, bassist Jamey Gleaves and keyboardist Tony Kent, Whiskey Myers has been steadily building a devoted following.
Drawing inspiration from Waylon Jennings and Nirvana, the band’s roots stretch back decades into the red dirt of East Texas, where it began playing together. It earned a rabid local following on the strength of its 2008 debut album, “Road of Life,” and then notched its first No. 1 on the Texas Music Charts with the 2011 follow-up “Firewater.” Its breakout third album, 2014’s “Early Morning Shakes,” found the band traveling across the Unites States and the United Kingdom, sharing stages with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr. and Jamey Johnson, as well as racking up more than 300 million streams of their songs.
Following “Early Morning Shakes,” its fourth album, “Mud,” climbed to No. 4 on Billboard’s country charts in 2016. The group was later featured in Kevin Costner’s TV series, “Yellowstone,” in 2018, which propelled the band’s entire catalogue into the Top 10 of the iTunes country chart. Its self-titled fifth album was released in 2019.
