      EVENT DETAILS
      Whiskey Myers

      with Scooter Brown Band
      It would be an understatement to say that a lot has happened since Whiskey Myers waslast in the recording studio. Over two whirlwind years, the gritty Texas band hit #1 onthe iTunes Country Chart with their breakout third album 'Early Morning Shakes,'earned raves everywhere from Rolling Stone to USA Today, and toured the US and UKrelentlessly, slaying massive festival crowds and sharing stages with Lynyrd Skynyrd,Hank Williams Jr., Jamey Johnson, and more along the way. You'd be forgiven, then,for expecting things to work a little differently this time around when the bandreunited with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb for their stellar new album, 'Mud.' But asit turns out, success doesn't change a Southern gentleman, and they don't come anymore Southern than Whiskey Myers.Fueled by larger-than-life performances honed tight from countless nights on the road,'Mud' finds the band scaling new heights of songwriting and musicianship, with searingguitars, soulful vocals, and indelible hooks. While their approach to the music andhumble, hard-working attitudes may not have altered, there have been developmentsin the Whiskey Myers world, most notably with the arrival of new faces. For therecording sessions, the band's five founding membersCody Cannon on lead vocals andguitar, Cody Tate and John Jeffers on guitars, Gary Brown on bass, and Jeff Hogg ondrumsfleshed out their sound with the addition of fiddler/keyboard player JonKnudson and percussionist Tony Kent, who are both now full-time members."They bring a great energy, and I think it's really helped our sound and makes the bandmore versatile," explains Cannon. "There's less room onstage now, but sometimes afamily grows."A glance through Whiskey Myers' lyrics will show you that Cannon is a man who chooseshis words carefully, so it's little surprise that he describes the band as a family. Thetight-knit group's roots stretch back decades into the red dirt of East Texas, whereCannon, Jeffers, and Tate first began playing together before rounding out their initiallineup with the addition Hogg and Brown (who is Cannon's actual cousin). They built upa rabid local following on the strength of their 2008 debut album, 'Road Of Life,' andthen notched their first #1 on the Texas Music Charts with their 2011 follow-up'Firewater.' It was 'Early Morning Shakes,' though, that introduced the rest of the worldto what Texas already knew. The album cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard CountryChart, a remarkable feat for a fiercely independent band and a testament to theirrigorous DIY work ethic and endless supply of passion and drive. Esquire called them"the real damn deal," while Country Weekly said they combine "greasy Southern rockriffs with countrified songwriting and Texas grit for something wholly unique," andPlayboy dubbed them "the new bad boys of country music."Even in the face of their rapidly-growing profile and expanding lineup, the band foundthey were able to pick up exactly where they left off when they returned to the studiofor 'Mud.'
