Inspired by the music of Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, in 2007 the band Whiskey Myers was formed with Cody Cannon, John Jeffers, Cody Tate, and Jeff Hogg. Adding other members over the years, the band released six studio albums, with their last, Tornillo, hitting shelves back in July 2022. While continuing to share their love for music, the band recently announced they needed to cancel their upcoming concert in Santa Barbara, California due to Cannon battling through illness.
