The SRO crowd dominated by various key liquor industry executives, media representatives and others took in a John Rich exclusive and intimate performance on Friday, February 23, 2018 at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Stage at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Resort in Deadwood, South Dakota.
“As I have previously stated, I share a great kinship with the history and the people of South Dakota,” commented John Rich. “My musical partner, Big Kenny Alphin and I have been inspired as songwriters by the history of the state, as well as by men like Vietnam veteran Niles Harris who inspired one of our songs and our commitment to Folds of Honor to help pay for college tuition for kids who have had a parent killed in combat. I can’t think of a better place and venue than Deadwood, South Dakota to celebrate with friends the rollout of our great American blend in this beautiful and historic state.”
Redneck Riviera Whiskey is currently now available or will be available very shortly in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, North Carolina, North and South Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Nebraska. The list of states where Redneck Riviera Whiskey is distributed will grow as the product rollout continues.
