These men will continue the legacy of some of the country greats. I do believe Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and George Jones would be pleased to see the hard work these guys have put in.
1. Whitey Morgan
Whitey Morgan and the 78s began their journey in 2010 after they signed with a Chicago based record label called Bloodshot Records. With a mix of different sounds and lyrics, in my opinion, he will be the ruler of the Outlaw country genre before we know it. If you grew up on the classics like I have, (Waylon and Merle) I have a strong feeling Mr. Morgan will be on your phone soon. Check out his music on Apple Music, Spotify, and Youtube.
2. Whiskey Myers
From deep East Texas comes a band that has stolen my heart. Whiskey Myers has made a rise on the Red Dirt/Texas country charts in the past year. Their eclectic, Skynyrd like sounds draw you to their music. Their lyrics will touch your soul and make you have a new respect about hidden issues people go through. Their music is not for the faint hearted, but will forever be the best drinking music out there.
3. Cody Jinks
Another fellow Texan has climbed the charts in the past few years. He also hones in on the sounds of artists from decades past. His biggest influence is definitely Merle, he even has covered many of his songs. His lyrics are harsh, but true and will take you back in time.
