Taste of Country Debuts New Whiskey Myers ‘Where the Sun Don’t Shine’


The new year will see Whiskey Myers release their third studio album, and first since 2011. “Firewater,” their most recent project was a Southern Rock at it’s core — and the task of following it up will be tough.

Hear a sample of Reckoning, Home, and Early Morning Shakes, off their forthcoming 2014 project:

But, judging solely from the teasers the guys have been feeding us the past couple months, their latest radio single, and that exclusive smashup — it would appear “Early Morning Shakes,” out Feb. 4, is definitely up to the task of following up what became a definitive Whiskey Myers album.

The Dave Cobb produced album, “Early Morning Shakes,” is a twelve track record of dirty country and rock songs — filled with thoughtful lyrics and hard hitting guitar solos. Exactly what we’ve come to expect from WM.

Today debuted a new song “Where the Sun Don’t Shine.” So happy to see these guys being embraced by so many different outlets. Here’s what TOC had to say about the new song:

‘Where the Sun Don’t Shine’ is a mid-tempo southern rocker about making ends meet any way you can. The track from this Tyler, Texas group is thick with guitars, organ and twang.

The next verse describes a single mom’s struggles, and things become more enjoyably sordid after that. ‘Early Morning Shakes’ draws from country, rock, R&B and psychedelic rock in addition to string band traditions. It’s their second album with Wiggy Thump Records, the follow-up to ‘Firewater’ from 2011.

Last week, you may remember, Yahoo Music got the exclusive debut of “Shelter from the Rain.”

This is the first real love song I have ever written,” says frontman Cody Cannon. “A lot of the stuff I write is pretty straightforward. There aren’t any hidden codes, it’s just about your woman sheltering you from the rain or hard times.

In December, the guys stopped by to perform on our Front Porch, click the titles to watch the broke-down, acoustic-ish performances of new songs like “Lightning,” “Dogwood,” and their current radio single, “Home.”
