Koe Wetzel's Riot Room, a restaurant with a country-rock look and bottle service, has opened in Fort Worth. The Riot Room is part-owned by Koe Wetzel, the musician known for country songs "Wasted," "Drunk Driving" and "Good Die Young." He was raised a little over two hours east of Dallas in the small town of Pittsburg, then got famous on a new-school brand of outlaw country. "Koe Wetzel may be the next big thing in Texas country music," The Dallas Morning News wrote in 2017 as his star was beginning to rise.
