Ahead of their latest album, the Texas country group Whiskey Myers is announcing a 41-city tour. To Texans, the group is a staple in country music. This is alongside the likes of Koe Wetzel and Parker McCollum. However, the band skyrocketed to fame following the debut of their single “Stone” on the hit series “Yellowstone.”

Now, Whiskey Myers is set to release “Tornillo,” their latest and greatest of soul-shaking albums. And they’ll be kicking things off in April with a Beaumont, Texas opener. The band will continue with several guests until they close the tour on August 13 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This will be just 15 days after the release of their newest album.

The “Broken Window Serenade” group is set to feature Shane Smith, Jamestown Revival, Read Southall Band, and more during their months-long tour. It’s sure to be a stacked lineup of great artists.

The Texas-based group featuring six people also began their career in 2008 when they released “Road of Life.” This was their debut album. Cody Cannon is notably the lead vocalist and guitarist. Further, his emotion-filled voice against a southern rock sound encapsulates the meaning of Texas country. And the group is here to stay. They are planning a rocking show that proves their talent. And you should make sure you have a front-row seat.

Whiskey Myers’ Start

However, it wasn’t until the release of “Firewater” in 2011 that brought attention to the small band. They also slowly grew their audience through live performances and hits like “Ballad of a Southern Man.”

From there, Whiskey Myers procured a loyal following who was drawn to their soulful sound and honest lyrics.

When “Yellowstone” featured two of their songs in the first three seasons, country fans everywhere were hooked.
