WhiskeyDick

“At​ ​the​ ​lonesome​ ​crossroads​ ​where​ ​country​ ​and​ ​metal​ ​intersect,​ ​stand​ ​two​ ​swaggering​ ​badasses​ ​holding​ ​acoustic​ ​guitars.​ ​They’re not​ ​interested​ ​in​ ​your​ ​soul​ ​they​ ​have​ ​plenty​ ​of​ ​soul​ ​already.”​ ​-​ ​Kevin​ ​Kurtain

Cult​ ​favorites​ ​WhiskeyDick​ ​blow​ ​minds​ ​with​ ​a​ ​double​ ​barrel​ ​blast​ ​of​ ​dreadnaught​ ​shredding​ ​and​ ​hillbilly​ ​bellowing​ ​that​ ​makes​ ​you want​ ​to​ ​knock​ ​back​ ​a​ ​shot,​ ​stand​ ​up​ ​tall,​ ​and​ ​holler​ ​”Oh-Hell-YeeHaw!”

The​ ​Fort​ ​Worth​ ​duo​ ​carry​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Texas​ ​traditions​ ​of​ ​super-powered​ ​guitar​ ​slinging​ ​and​ ​clever​ ​songwriting​ ​that​ ​make​ ​lone​ ​star​ ​music a​ ​worldwide​ ​curiosity,​ ​except​ ​Reverend​ ​Johnson​ ​will​ ​remind​ ​you​ ​more​ ​of​ ​Dimebag​ ​Darrell​ ​than​ ​Billy​ ​Gibbons​ ​and​ ​Fritz​ ​remains​ ​more lyrically​ ​akin​ ​to​ ​David​ ​Allen​ ​Coe​ ​than​ ​Robert​ ​Earl​ ​Keen.

WhiskeyDick’s​ ​live​ ​show​ ​is​ ​a​ ​true​ ​spectacle:​ ​two​ ​giant,​ ​tattooed,​ ​mean-looking​ ​dudes​ ​saunter​ ​on​ ​stage​ ​and​ ​sit​ ​down​ ​on​ ​2​ ​chairs,​ ​then pick​ ​up​ ​acoustic​ ​guitars​ ​and​ ​proceed​ ​to​ ​amaze​ ​everyone​ ​by​ ​generating​ ​more​ ​power​ ​than​ ​a​ ​full​ ​band​ ​by​ ​means​ ​of​ ​Fritz’s​ ​deep,​ ​rich vocals,​ ​Johnson’s​ ​unapproachable​ ​acoustic​ ​guitar​ ​heroics,​ ​and​ ​their​ ​triumphant​ ​songwriting.

“We’re​ ​just​ ​a​ ​train​ ​robbin’,​ ​gun​ ​totin’,​ ​dope​ ​smokin’,​ ​guitar​ ​pickin’​ ​muthafuckin’​ ​good​ ​time​ ​band.​ ​Taking​ ​hillbilly​ ​music​ ​and​ ​spreading it​ ​across​ ​the​ ​land.”
