Whiskey Myers is a folk/country/rock band from Tyler, Texas. One of my favorite aspects of this band is the artfully crafted lyrics. Couple that with a clean but subtly raspy voice and wonderful guitar musicianship, and you get one incredible band. I love CMT's description of the band:
"Ultimately, the bigger truth is that Whiskey Myers is sort of inexplicable. With its superb twin-lead guitars, Cody Cannon’s rough-cut lead vocals and a solid, uncluttered rhythm section, the band typically winds around a Lynyrd Skynyrd/Led Zeppelin-centered foundation, veering off in spokes of grunge, psychedelia, harmony-laden pop-rock and rockabilly. It’s a Southern-rock band with jam-band tendencies. Maybe."
My favorite songs include 'Virginia,' 'Ballad of a Southern Man,' and 'Early Morning Shakes.' Below is a live version of 'Guitar Picker,' which demonstrates their soulful lyrics and incredible guitar.
