Whiskey Myers at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, LA

Just two hours from their old stomping ground in Palestine, TX, Whiskey Myers takes the stage in Shreveport, LA.

One hour after the doors open, usher Bones-Owens took the stage accompanied by Sonny Remlinger and Doy Gardner. Along with Bones (guitar/vocals), Remlinger (keyboards/bass) and Gardner (drums), the trio set the tone for the rest of the concert. Fans nodded delightfully and enjoyed the melodic tune. Bones-Owens will perform at the first two stages of Whiskey Myers Tornillo Jour. The first in Biloxi, MS at the Crawfish Music Festival and the second in Beaumont, TX at the Southeast Texas Crawfish Festival, at Ford Park.

During the forty-minute break between the two sets, the anticipation began to mount. Around 9:20 p.m., the group goes on stage. The six-member band consists of Cody Cannon (vocals/guitar/harmonica), John Jeffers (guitar/slide guitar/lap steel/vocals), Cody Tate (guitar/vocals/rhythm guitar), Jamey Gleaves (bass), Jeff Hogg (drums) and Tony Kent (percussion/bell/keyboards), who all know how to put on a show. The group opened with their popular single “John Wayne” from their latest album. Tornillo. The group continues to perform “Gasoline” and “Bury My Bones”, both from the 2019 album release of their self-titled album. Whiskey Myers. It wasn’t until the fifth song of the night that the band played the long-awaited “Broken Window Serenade” from their second album. fire water, that the crowd chanted the first verse after Cannon stopped to listen to the audience sing along. Even though this song is arguably one of the band’s saddest, the crowd ate it and enjoyed every bit of it.

After the band took their pre-recall hiatus, they returned with the acoustic version of “Reckoning”, from their album Shake early in the morning. They then performed their song “Ballad of a Southern Man” which is, and probably always will be, to a surprising crowd reception. For the penultimate song, they played their famous “Stone” from the album Mud. This song was performed on Paramount+ Yellowstone wwhich led to a huge increase in flows. The relentless band closed the night with a cover of “Refugee” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Leaving the stage with as much energy as they brought on the first song.

The band started their amphitheater Tornillo tour April 22 and will travel across North America to see fans. They will be supported by Shane Smith and the Saints, Goodbye June, 49 Winchester and Read Southall Band. The final two shows will take place in La Cygne, MS.
