The Sioux Empire Fair is pleased to announce Whiskey Myers with special guest Read Southall Band will play on the BillionAuto.com Main Stage at the Sioux Empire Fair on Thursday, August 10, 2023.
Genre-bending band Whiskey Myers have played more than 3,000 live shows to ever-increasing crowd sizes since their emergence in 2007. Their self-produced fifth studio album, WHISKEY MYERS, out now on the band’s own Wiggy Thump Records, debuted at No. 1 on both the Country and Americana/Folk sales charts, at No. 2 on the Rock chart and No. 6 on the allgenre Billboard 200 chart. The self-titled project follows their previous album, Mud, which reached No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart with single “Stone” hitting Top 10 all-genre. In total, Whiskey Myers have sold more than 1.2 million albums and amassed over 1.5 billion streams while earning three RIAA Gold certifications. USA Today describes the band led by frontman Cody Cannon as “a riff-heavy blend of Southern rock and gritty country that has earned comparisons to the Allman Brothers Band and Led Zeppelin,” with Rolling Stone noting “it’s the seminal combination of twang and crunchy rock & roll guitars that hits a perfect sweet spot.”
The band known for their high-energy live show and unique sound has also earned sync success with features (and an appearance) in Paramount Network’s hit show “Yellowstone” as well as the Renée Zellweger-led Netflix series “What/If,” the Angelina Jolie film “Those Who Wish Me Dead” and hit CBS series “SEAL Team.”
“Whiskey Myers is going to put on a great show for fairgoers”, says Fair Manager Scott Wick. “We're thrilled have them coming to the Sioux Empire Fair”
Joining Whiskey Myers is special guest Read Southall Band. Their third studio album, For the Birds, is ambitious and captures vigorous, rock ‘n’ roll energy with elements of country and southern rock. From classic to contemporary rock, these are songs that could appeal to the disparate fanbases of Gary Stewart, Joe Walsh, Rival Sons, or Chris Cornell.
American Songwriter called For The Birds, "Exploratory... Traversing through uncharted sonic territory" and Raised Rowdy proclaims, "There is a ton of excitement building around Read Southall Band at the moment." Riff Magazine notes, "Read Southall Band combines the heavy guitars of the late - and post-grunge era with southern rock vocals and a country music sensibility to create a sound outside the expectations of any of those genres by themselves."
Tickets to Whiskey Myers with special guest Read Southall Bandwill go on sale to the public on Friday, March 17 at 10am, online only, at SiouxEmpireFair.com. Fair Admission is included with ticket purchase.
