Whiskey Myers

[ROCK] Red Dirt rockers Whiskey Myers from Palestine, Texas (a seeming contradiction in terms, no?) come bucking and snorting into the Town Ballroom on Saturday, February 18, supporting Mud, their fourth disc, out last Fall on the Wiggy Thump label (with some distribution help from Thirty Tigers). Now expanded to seven pieces from five, these Wild Eyed Southern Boys have used Mud  as an opportunity to show a now-captive audience all the cool tricks they can do without completely ripping up the country-based template that’s brought them this far; 2014’s Early Morning Shakes reached Billboard’s country top 10 and was an iTunes #1.The results are highly listenable — grittier than something like Blackberry Smoke — making melting pot goodness from bits of Skynyrd, Zeppelin, R’n’B and deep twang, occasionally augmented by horns, backup gals, Classic FM guitar work, and fiddling, the latter of which adds an Appalachian mountain feel to the opener “On the River.” Former Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson contributed the track “Frogman,” and actually, there are numerous points during Mud where front man Cody Cannon sounds an awful lot like Crowes focal point Chris Robinson. At the end of the day, this is trusty Southern rock and roll – something that’s never been broken and requires no fixing, further exemplified by the live-in-the-studio feel of “Trailer We Call Home.” Goodbye June opens.
