Whiskey Myers kicks off Teton County Fair tonight

JACKSON, WY — Teton Count Fair will start with a bang tonight.

Southern rock/country group Whiskey Myers will take the main stage at the fair tonight for a FREE concert.

Hailing from Palestine, Texas, Whiskey Myers is composed of Cody Cannon (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), John Jeffers (lead guitar, slide guitar, lap steel guitar, vocals), Cody Tate (lead and rhythm guitar), Jeff Hogg (drums), Tony Kent (percussion/drums), and Jamey Gleaves (bass). The band started when friends Cannon and Jeffers began learning guitar together, inspired by the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, and many more. They were joined by Cannon’s coworker and friend Cody Tate and started calling themselves “Lucky Southern.” But the more they grew, the more serious they became, and Whiskey Myers grew into a movement that is taking off across the country.

In 2008, they released their debut album, Road of Life. Their second album, Firewater, was released by Wiggy Thump in 2011 and debuted in the Top 30 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, largely thanks to the single “Ballad of a Southern Man”. On February 4, 2014, the album, Early Morning Shakes, was released and received mostly positive reviews. The most recent studio album, Mud, was released September 9, 2016. The band has just finished up their newest album to be released in 2019 which is self-produced by the band itself.

In 2018, the band was featured in four episodes of the Kevin Costner Paramount Network series Yellowstone (U.S TV Series). Shortly afterward, the band’s three available albums moved into the top 10 iTunes country chart. Their most recent album, Mud, reached #1 on the charts, and its song “Stone” reached #9 in all genres.

Wyoming-based Tasha and the Goodfellows will open with energizing rock and country dance covers.

Don’t miss the FREE concert tonight in the Grassy Arena at the Teton County Fairgrounds. Doors open at 6 p.m., music starts at 6:30.
