Whiskey Myers is on a Roll in 2022

Whiskey Myers just released the fourth single from their forthcoming album Tornillo. “The Wolf” has existed in some form for a few years, but this is the first time a studio version has been available.

The drop came just after the band earned its first “Platinum Single” certifications for “Stone,” “Ballad of a Southern Man” and “Broken Window Serenade.” The band also recently made its Red Rocks debut in front of a sold-out crowd.

Following the Red Rocks performance, the band shared a clip on Instagram to celebrate the momentous occasion.

“Our first night at Red Rocks will be one we will never forget. Thank you to everyone who made it so special,” the post was captioned.

Tornillo is due on July 29. It is the sixth studio album from the Texans. Their most recent, eponymous release peaked at number one on the US country charts. The band is on the road through the end of November.
