Texas rockers Whiskey Myers will hold a special, virtual concert at 8 p.m. ET tonight (May 21), featuring a full-production show live from Billy Bob’s Texas in partnership with Miller Lite.

The concert promises “top-notch production from full lights and audio to a multi-camera stream by XI Media.” The guys also promise to still abide by physical distancing guidelines during the show.

“Our fans have been hungry for a streamed show for some time now, but we wanted to wait until we could do it right – so we really appreciate our friends at Miller Lite stepping in to help make that happen,” guitarist John Jeffers said in a statement. “When you go live, in any instance, you never know what can happen. We always said Bill (Cody Tate) would wrestle a grizzly bear at a live show. So maybe this is his time to shine! Regardless, this is the longest streak in our career that we’ve been without playing a show so we’re just excited to all be back together and rockin’.”

The event will raise funds for bartenders and those in the hospitality industry that have been impacted by restaurant and bar closures via the Miller Lite Virtual Tip Jar. All proceeds go directly to the United States Bartender’s Guild National Charity Foundation and its Bartender Emergency Assistance Program. For more information, head to virtual-tips.org.

Whiskey Myers have also signed on to perform two sold-out shows for drive-up attendees as part of the Texas Rangers’ “Concert in Your Car” event.
