Whiskey Myers is Firing Up Fans With "Firewater"

  • May 27, 2011
One look at Whiskey Myers and you might think you're at a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute concert. They look (and sound) like they walked straight out of 1975. The Texas-based band shares a lot of similarities with Skynyrd, but they're uniquely talented in their own right. Their album "Firewater" was released earlier this year by Smith Entertainment.

The record gets off to a great start with "Bar, Guitar, and a Honkytonk Crowd," a crowd-pleasing, rock n' roll/country jam with a little soul. I hate to keep making these references, but one major similarity I noticed between Skynyrd and Whiskey Myers is this -- song length. Five of the album's 12 tracks are 5-8 minutes long. "Freebird," anyone?

Listening to the album, I'm not sure I would classify Whiskey Myers as a country band. I would classify it more as southern rock. You can hear the influences of both country music and rock n' roll throughout the record, particularly on "Different Mold," which is a flat-out '70s rock song, and "Ballad of a Southern Man," which is arguably the most country song of this collection.

If you like the band Blackberry Smoke, I think you're going to love Whiskey Myers. It's kind of nice to hear a throwback to the great tunes of the 1970s. If you're a fan of more contemporary country, I'm not sure this is the album for you. However, I do think you should check them out for yourself and see what you think of their sound. You can do that here:
