Lead singer Cody Cannon was given his first guitar by his crazy biker grandfather. Cannon met lead guitar player Cody Tate at a sporting goods store. Bassist Gary Brown did not know how to play bass when he was invited into the band. The band has come a long way from these humble beginnings. Whiskey Myers' latest album, Early Morning Shakes, was produced by Dave Cobb, who has produced both outlaw-country icon Waylon Jennings and 80s hair-metal stars Europe.
The band has three guitarists, Cody Cannon, Cody Tate and John Jeffers. Cannon is the main songwriter and sings lead. Whiskey Myers' rhythm section consists of Gary Brown on bass and Jeff Hogg on drums. The band was formed by Cannon in Tyler, Texas, and its members have played together since they were young. Whiskey Myers is currently based in Palestine, Texas.
Whiskey Myers first rose to prominence with its 2011 album Firewater. The album reached number one on the Texas Music Charts on the strength of the single Anna Marie. The album's lyrics reflect Whiskey Myers' deeply held feelings of Southern pride, and its guitar-driven sound drew comparisons to Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Whiskey Myers' highest-charting album is its most recent, Early Morning Shakes. The album reached number 10 on the U.S. Country Charts and 54 on the Billboard 200. Their previous album, Firewater, was also a hit, reaching 26 on the country charts. The sounds on the band's albums are eclectic, rooted in Southern Rock but incorporating hints of psychedelic rock, R&B, rockabilly and even grunge.
Whiskey Myers tickets get you a seat for a raucous, guitar-laden show. Whiskey Myers started as a bar band, and they still bring that same energy and sincerity to their shows in larger venues. All three guitarists play lead at different points in the set, which often leads to beautiful harmonising and double-guitar instrumental rave ups. The band intersperses the harder-rocking tracks with soulful ballads like Reckoning and Colloquy.
