Meet Whiskey Thomas of The Heart

Today we’d like to introduce you to Whiskey Thomas.

Hi Whiskey, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I’ve watched Uncle Tommy kill it on the road for a lifetime. I spent a good twelve years playing guitar before I finally got to go road dog with him a little bit which is what really made me fall in love with Country music. I found out later I could paint whatever I wanted to with it.

I didn’t start burning up a mic til I started writing around five years ago. I feel that I’ve been very blessed with some lucky songs that I didn’t think I was smart enough to write. I’m very thankful for songwriting and what it’s done for me but I also really appreciate the work that is coming out of this town recently. I feel that I’m getting to the party at a good time. Music has been the family business for 40 years plus and I’m next up so I’m just doing what we all do, to be honest.

It ain’t ever gave up on me and I know I’m gonna keep living for it so I can’t wait to see how it keeps kicking my life down the road. I’ve moved my songs from the living room couch to Broadway which is a trick I didn’t think I knew but I’m just gonna keep following God and thanking him when he puts one of my feet in front of the other.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Every time music gets mean I just keep loving it til it acts right. I feel like no matter how hard it gets my love for it blocks out any negativity. So if there’s a speed bump, I just slow down for it.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Music has been with me always but the domino that knocked the rest down was writing and recording. I pretty much just wrote and recorded songs that my family and I could love and pass down the line. I put a lot of time into learning how to create things I was proud of.

At one point I just wanted to be a songwriter but as more songs came to me and more people around me started to support what I was doing I knew I wanted to tell my own stories and make them proud. Every win, I’ve got so far is a win for my family, friends, and anyone I can’t see that is supporting me.

I got a band of players I’m lucky to have, a woman who believes in me more than I do sometimes, buddies that would drop the world to keep me going, a family of the most loving people, and a whole bunch of faith. I’m most proud of the people around me.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
Other than wishing them well. I think they’ll eventually find I mean it when I say I’m doing this for all the right reasons. Time has been good to me so far and I feel very blessed to be able to do this. I look forward to the future.
