Listen Now: Little Big Town “Rich Man”

On the heels of announcing their 10th studio album Mr. Sun this week, ACM, CMA and GRAMMY-winning band Little Big Town has released the latest glimpse into the new record with “Rich Man” – available everywhere now. LBT’s Jimi Westbrook, who wrote the track, began toying with the idea of “Rich Man” more than a decade ago, with the concept growing more robust as time passed and life experiences happened. After years of the song never leaving the back of his mind and constantly adding to it as life shifted, Mr. Sun became the perfect landing spot for a song that reflects what genuine wealth means to the band. “‘Rich Man’ has a special place in my heart, and it feels like the most honest me song I’ve ever written,” Westbrook shares. “It is about my love of family and their role in laying the foundation that anchors me.” The track’s accompanying lyric video, released today, is a further reflection of that, filled to the brim with personal footage of the band and their kids throughout the years. Mr. Sun is set for release on September 16, 2022. Physical pre-orders of Mr. Sun are available now, including two hand-signed options from the band – a limited edition, web-store edition tangerine vinyl that includes an 11×11” art card, and a CD that includes a 4×4” art card – in addition to a baby blue vinyl edition of the record. A sky blue vinyl of Mr. Sun will be available exclusively through Barnes & Noble. Read More

How Waylon Jennings Convinced A Man To Leave His Wife Alone With Him After A Show One Night

Waylon Jennings is an absolute legend. His iconic collection of music speaks for itself, one of my favorites of all time, but more than the music, his independent attitude and the way he lived his life… it’s just downright captivating. He was interviewed years ago on Nashville Public Television in promotion of his book which was released in 1996, Waylon: An Autobiography. They dove deep into some of the elements that made Jennings a country music icon, and he also tells a few stories that […] The post How Waylon Jennings Convinced A Man To Leave His Wife Alone With Him After A Show One Night first appeared on Whiskey Riff.

Dolly Parton never ceases to make me laugh. She’s downright hilarious, and she always has a couple good one-liners up her sleeve for any interview she does. I’m sure that’s part of what’s kept her marriage to her husband of 55 years, Carl Dean, fresh and exciting. Though Carl chooses to intentionally stay out of the spotlight, Dolly often mentions him and what a solid marriage they’ve built over the years. And she once told Ladies Home Journal that they don’t even […] The post Dolly Parton Never Calls Her Husband Carl Dean By His Name… She Only Calls Him “Daddy” first appeared on Whiskey Riff.

Diggin’ into the vault. We’re taking it all the way back to 2012 and a performance from SiriusXM Radio‘s Outlaw Country station. The great Hank Williams Jr., Jamey Johnson, and Shooter Jennings took the opportunity to tip the cap to a premiere country music outlaw (and Shooter’s old man), the great Waylon Jennings. The medley kicked off with “Good Hearted Woman,” and took a turn to “There Ain’t No Good Chain Gang,” which was originally a duet performed by Waylon […] The post Hank Williams Jr., Shooter Jennings & Jamey Johnson Team Up For Waylon Jennings Medley first appeared on Whiskey Riff.

Merle Haggard On How His Ex-Wife, Bonnie Owens, Inspired His Country Music Hit, “Today I Started Loving You Again”

Merle Haggard is easily one of, if not THE, greatest country music singers that ever lived. And though his life was far from perfect, he was never afraid to put those experiences into his songs and be as authentic and real about his struggles as he possibly could be. And that includes the challenges that came along with his multiple marriages. The Hag was married five times in total, and he was married to his second wife, Bonnie Owens, from […] The post Merle Haggard On How His Ex-Wife, Bonnie Owens, Inspired His Country Music Hit, “Today I Started Loving You Again” first appeared on Whiskey Riff.
