New Artist Highlight: Jackson Wendell

Every once in a while we get a fan submission that goes above and beyond the casual mention of an artist they love. That was the case when Tyler Hendricks reached out to us on Facebook to make sure we didn’t miss out on young talent Jackson Wendell. Here’s what he had to say: “This young country artist [Jackson Wendell] is doing everything right. He’s so easy to root for, and is worth watching (and writing about). Jackson started writing these songs at age fifteen, continued to work and refine his writing, playing, and singing. And at the ripe old age of 18, has released two killer singles with a debut EP on the way. When you listen to his lyrics, you would imagine you were hearing the stories of a much older songwriter, as each song takes you right to the middle of a familiar feeling. He has captured the essence of young love (and its disappointments) in “Ain’t Coming Home,” especially in the third verse. The line about county jail makes you smile every time. And the newest single, “Drinkin’ Alone,” drags you through the ditch of real heartbreak. The line that opens the chorus sets the stage of an all too familiar story for those who have loved and lost. The thought he put into production on this one is also next level. The song doesn’t just have a hooky melody and great lyrics. It also has THE SOUND. The whole thing, down to the tone of the electric guitars, sounds gritty and pissed off. It’s the kind of song that makes you wanna crank the speakers in your truck and shred your air-guitar until you get over the breakup. You can tell that Jackson isn’t like most high school seniors. He starts his day at 4:30am… Read More

Listen Now: Jason Isbell – Middle of the Morning

JASON ISBELL OFFERS FANS A SECOND LOOK AT FORTHCOMING ALBUM WEATHERVANES; AVAILABLE JUNE 9 “Middle of the Morning” is Out Now: Listen HERE Documentary Film Jason Isbell: Running with Our Eyes Closed Out April 7 on HBO Max In anticipation of their eighth studio album Weathervanes, GRAMMY-Award winners Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit have released a second track from the project, “Middle of the Morning,” available now. Weathervanes, out June 9 via Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers, is written and produced by Isbell.  Stream “Middle of the Morning” HERE Watch Lyric Video HERE “Middle of the Morning” is a song written during the pandemic lockdown. Melancholy and honest with those Isbell phrases that will sneak into your vocabulary, the narrator, who both is and is not Isbell himself, describes the feeling of being stuck in place, wheels and mind spinning, feeling like some essential part of yourself lives just outside of your reach.  “It was about trying to keep my mind from unraveling over the couple of years there,” said Isbell. Well I’ve tried to open up my window and let the light come in I step outside in the middle of the morning and in the evening again Yes I’ve tried to be grateful for my devils and call them by their names but I’m tired and by the middle of the morning I need someone to blame Pre-save Weathervanes HERE “Middle of the Morning” follows the lead track from Weathervanes, “Death Wish,” released last month to a fevered response:  “’Death Wish’ is a perfect example of the themes Weathervanes explores, unpacking the complicated conflicts of loving someone struggling to love themselves from the depths of depression…” – Consequence “The 400 Unit makes a majestically clangy minor-key racket while Isbell, his voice raw and desperate, howls about taking a whole… Read More

Randy Rogers Band Enjoy #1 Success on Texas Radio

Randy Rogers Band has topped the charts once again, earning their latest #1 at Texas Country Radio with current single “Fast Car” last week. “Fast Car” marks over 20 #1s for Randy Rogers Band at Texas Country Radio, an era of dominance that began two decades ago.  “I’m so proud this song is #1,” Rogers shares. “I can’t say enough about how thankful I am that Texas regional radio supports not only our band, but so many talented artists that deserve the credit for the hard work it takes to stay on the road.”  Written by Randy Montana, Wendell Mobley and Lee Miller, “Fast Car” finds its narrator wondering about a woman he just met, calling to mind the “butterfly-provoking process of falling head-over-heels for someone you like,” as put by CMT, who deemed the track “the ultimate love song.” Along with topping the charts in Texas, “Fast Car” recently entered the Top 50 on the nationwide Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country radio chart. The song first appeared on Randy Rogers Band’s critically praised 2022 album, HOMECOMING (Tommy Jackson Records / Thirty Tigers). Earlier this month, Randy Rogers Band headlined a SOLD-OUT show at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium and was profiled by the Tennessean in a piece highlighting the band’s innumerable contributions to the Texas Country scene and declaring their “brand of two-stepping, honky-tonking good-time party music” to be “in an elite, world-renowned class of that country music subgenre.” Randy Rogers Band is currently on the road and has a slate of upcoming dates throughout the Southern United States as well as major summer shows on the books including a performance at Windy City Smokeout in Chicago and a visit to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado with Parker McCollum. See the band’s full list of tour dates here. Read More

Fresh off her historic GRAMMY® Award win, reigning ACM Awards Female Artist of the Year Carly Pearce has earned her fourth career No. 1 at Country radio with “What He Didn’t Do” (Big Machine Records) as the song officially reigns atop the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart. The gold-certified hit has amassed over 235 million streams to date while its official music video is currently nominated for CMT Female Video of the Year. The 10x CMT Music Awards nominee is also up for Performance of the Year and will perform at the live show on Sunday, April 2 which will air on CBS and stream on Paramount+ at 8/7c. Of the achievement Pearce said, “I wrote ‘What He Didn’t Do’ at a time when I needed to be reminded of my worth and that I deserved better. I knew it was special from the moment we wrote it. It is a song about hope, reminding yourself what you deserve moving forward. Out of all of my singles, this one I am most proud of. I am thankful that country radio wrapped their arms around it to allow fans to hear the message.” Pearce is also celebrating the release of her latest album 29: Written In Stone (Live From Music City) (released March 24 via Big Machine Records) which marks Pearce’s first live album and closes the chapter on her pivotal 29 journey. Produced by Pearce alongside David Clauss, 29: Written In Stone (Live From Music City) is a live retelling of her critically-acclaimed and commercially-lauded album 29, recorded during an intimate concert event at Marathon Music Works in Nashville and featuring appearances from special guests Ashley McBryde (“Never Wanted To Be That Girl”), Lee Brice (“I Hope You’re Happy Now”), The Isaacs (“Easy Going”), Matthew West (“Truth Be Told”), and Jenee Fleenor (“29”).

Would you expect anything else from this crazy tournament we’ve had so far? In a year when no #1 seeds made it to the Elite Eight for the first time ever, we’ve seen our fair share of wild moments in this year’s NCAA tournament. And tonight’s first game was no different. The #5-seed San Diego State was taking on #9-seed FAU for a chance to play for a national championship (who saw that one coming?) and the matchup didn’t disappoint.

Sierra Ferrell is BACK with more outstanding covers. My favorite hippie cowgirl has been out on the road and delivering some phenomenal shows during this tour. She wrapped up her Texas leg of the tour with a stop at historic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas. I have been consuming so much media from this first leg of the tour, especially from this show in particular. The energy in this venue hits differently. Maybe it’s due to the history that […] The post Sierra Ferrell Gives A Nod To Willie Nelson During Her Encore At Gruene Hall With “Seven Spanish Angels” first appeared on Whiskey Riff. Read More

Faith in humanity restored. This might be one of the best animal videos I’ve ever seen. It looks like a family is walking through the park when a wild squirrel walks straight up to them and politely asks for water from one of the individual’s water bottles. It is common knowledge that there is a big difference between “city squirrels” and “rural squirrels,” and this little guy has to be a concrete-jungle veteran. You wouldn’t ever see a rural squirrel […] The post Squirrel Politely Asks For A Drink From A Family’s Bottle Of Water first appeared on Whiskey Riff. Read More

A toxic puffer fish in Malaysia has cost one person their life and leaves another fighting to survive. A husband and wife bought fish from a market that they frequently visited, but with slim pickings left when they went, were left having to settle with buying the puffer fish, or “the drumstick fish” as it is known in Chinese. The couple, not knowing the potential dangers, went ahead with the purchase of the fish. Puffer fish is considered to be […] The post Woman Dies, Man Left Fighting For His Life After Eating Toxic Puffer Fish first appeared on Whiskey Riff. Read More

The day that baseball fans wait for every year finally happened Thursday with opening day of the 2023 MLB season. The day is always full of hope, with every team starting with a clean slate and fans flocking to their favorite team’s stadium to take in the newest edition of their starting lineup. The day is also apparently full of pent up rage and tension, as Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon had a fan by the shirt collar, […] The post Angels Third Baseman Anthony Rendon Attempts To Fight a Fan In The Stands: “You Called Me A B**** Huh?”” first appeared on Whiskey Riff.
