At a time when time has finally gotten the better of the legends Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band, when it doesn't seem to expect much from Molly Hatchet and when Rich Robinson is trying to save the spirit of the Black Crowes with his Magpie Salute, it's high time to take an interest in the next generation of southern rock because the style is known for its incredible ability to survive. Behind Gov't Mule and Black Stone Cherry, two bands seem to establish themselves as the leaders of the new generation: Blackberry Smoke and Whiskey Myers. The latter had marked their territory with an excellent "Mud" in 2016 and are back with a new eponymous opus all in white.

Reinforced by the female backing vocals provided by the McCrary Sisters, the sextet offers a new compendium of all the influences that make up its identity. From powerful rock with hard rock accents ('Die Rockin' ', 'Gasoline') to heavy ('Kentucky Gold', 'Hammer') that reminds us of Lynyrd Skynyrd, to lighter and countrysant tracks ('Rolling Stone' and its harmonica, 'Houston Country Sky' and its wild slide), there is something to delight all Southern rock fans.

But what makes the difference is the authenticity and depth of the tracks offered by Whiskey Myers. The anger is brutal on a 'Bitch' with an almost rapped vocals, when the emotion is intense on a bewitching 'Bury My Bones'. Cody Cannon's vocals translates all these feelings with accuracy and you have to hear him spitting his rage on 'Gasoline', singing a 'Glitter Ain't Gold' sweating under the heat of a burning sun, or showing infinite gentleness on the superb ballad that is 'Bad Weather' with a luminous final solo. Then of course, besides the Alabama legend, other influences come to mind such as Patterson Hood and Drive By Truckers ('Little More Money'), the Eagles ('Houston County Sky', 'Running') or Bruce Springsteen ('California To Caroline').

Whiskey Myers imposes here a strong and multi-faceted identity. With this eponymous opus, the Texans definitively confirm that they are indeed worthy heirs to the great legends of southern rock, whose influences they respect while enriching them. Once again, you won't come out unscathed from this journey in their company!
