Zach Bryan's Unmastered Version Of “Corinthians” Just Hits Different – Whiskey Riff

Country music is the lifeblood of Whiskey Riff, and we pride ourselves on standing firmly in the corner of the independent artists, and those few in the mainstream still doing it the right way. Whether it’s Waylon, Willie and legends of the past, or superstars in the making like Zach Bryan, our finger is always on the pulse of true country music. From Texas to Tennessee, Appalachia to Bakersfield, Whiskey Riff is THE unapologetic voice of the country music fan.
A RIFF on what makes the great outdoors…great.
“Country” is more than just a steel guitar. It’s a lifestyle. A mindset. A cold beer, hot grill and the great outdoors. A lifestyle so perfectly captured by the country greats of yesterday, but still alive and well today in artists who truly get it.
Whiskey Riff is that lifestyle.
Say goodbye to boredom.
The best playlists in country music…period.
On ‘Whiskey Riff Raff,’ Steve Gazibara and Wes Langeler give an unfiltered and unapologetic take on country music, life, and all the craziness that comes with it. Laugh with us. Rant with us. Drink with us.
Zach Bryan really has a way of giving us everything he’s got in the tank.
From the full 34 tracks on American Heartbreak that imply no song was left behind, to his ability to drop endless releases at the desired speeds of his listeners—this man is truly something. Not to mention his ability to connect with the younger country music generation with his insightful, exploratory lyrics.
For many Zach Bryan fans, it would probably be hard to name a favorite. And that’s assuming they’ve taken the needed hours to digest his 30-40 new projects and rifle through the tangle of emotional moments he produces with each one.
But for me, the unmastered sound of “Corinthians” is my easy first place finish.
Teased on Instagram in June, Zach Bryan showed off his acoustic stylings of the song, which got fans excited. The album version added a few more musical elements, but the raw ratio of voice-to-music in the unmastered edition really hits home.
The song represents a longing for a re-birth with lyrics focused on memorable moments juxtaposed with a desire to gain more appreciation.
And he brings it all home with the concluding bridge, which really packs a punch:
“And granddad sure was punchy,
But loved Jesus to his core,
I wanna die today, so I can learn to live for more…”
I mean what a dose of one-of-a-kind lyrics:
“And if I’m going down, then I’m going down true,
If I got anyone to thank then it’ll always be you…”
The level of authenticity that Zach Bryan pours into his music is extremely unique, and this song in particular really seems to lay his heart on the page.
With an earlier tweet from Bryan back in May insinuating that American Heartbreak will be his final tour, it makes you wonder if a “Corinthians” style re-birth is exactly what he’s hoping for after his experience in the limelight.
Last tour I’ll probably ever go on. Hope to see you guys on the road! I love you all and I’m the luckiest man alive. pic.twitter.com/6PWVU4EbYm
