Whiskey Myers Curated Firewater Festival Announces Lineup

Texas-based Southern rock band Whiskey Myers is set to launch their own personally-curated festival and annual gathering for their fans called the Firewater Festival, and they have just announced the inaugural lineup. The Drive-By Truckers, Whitey Morgan, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Steel Woods, Shane Smith and the Saints, Chris Knight, Jaime Wyatt, Bones Owens, Tennessee Jet, and Rob Leines will all join Whiskey Myers at the festival.

The Firewater Festival is set to take place October 1st through 3rd, 2020 in Ly Cynge, Kansas about 45 minutes south of Kansas City at the Wildwood Outdoor Education Center—the same location as the last two years of the Tumbleweed Festival, with Borda Productions behind the effort. The event has been cleared by state and local officials to move forward.

“Firewater gives us the chance to bring all of our friends and fans together in one place to just hang out and enjoy some really great music,”
says Whiskey Myers frontman Cody Cannon. “It’s going to be one hell of a weekend!”

Along with camping options, outdoor activities on the 150-acre property include canoeing and rock climbing, and obviously there will be lots of music performances by entertainers hand picked by Whiskey Myers. The festival will also include “special moments” with artists as well as “secret sets” and artist interaction.

“We’ve been involved in every aspect of putting this together,” says lead guitarist John Jeffers. “From the location and the activities to the badass artists that will be joining us, we wanted to make sure this festival is 100% Whiskey Myers.”

Whiskey Myers announced their presence as a premier band in independent music when their 2019 self-titled album debuted #1 in country, #2 in pure album sales overall, and #6 on the all-genre Billboard 200, putting the band in the very rare company of Blackberry Smoke, Aaron Watson, and Jason Isbell as independent artists topping the country albums charts.
