Blackberry Smoke leaves scars

Monday, June 2, 2014 – Blackberry Smoke will release "Leave a Scar, Live In North Carolina," a live concert CD and DVD release on July 8 on 3 Legged.

The Atlanta based quintet mix rock, country, gospel, bluegrass and soul.

The release will include a previously unrecorded, brand new song "Payback's A Bitch" plus footage of the band at home and the making of "Yesterday's Wine," which was recorded by Blackberry Smoke, George Jones and Jamey Johnson.

"We've wanted to make a live album for as long as I can remember," said lead singer Charlie Starr. "I think we really captured the essence of our show and the accompanying DVD gives fans a little more insight into life behind the scenes."

"The audience adds an extra rush of energy at shows, that is not present on studio recordings," said drummer Brit Turner. "We are so excited to have captured this especially remarkable show in Carolina. And as an added bonus there is an unreleased song on the CD and the DVD features footage of Blackberry Smoke recording with George Jones."

There will be an advance screening of the film during CMA Fest week on Friday, June 6 at 1:30 p.m. at the Swingin' Doors Saloon in Nashville.

CD reviews for Blackberry Smoke

The Southern Ground Sessions CD review - The Southern Ground Sessions
Blackberry Smoke's "The Southern Ground Sessions" EP is five versions of songs from the band's recent "Find a Light" album, along with a cover of Tom Petty's "You Got Lucky," which also features vocalist/violinist Amanda Shires. The project takes its name from the Southern Ground studio in Nashville, and this band, which can ramp up its music to Southern rock power - especially in concert - takes a few moments to quiet things down. »»»
Find a Light CD review - Find a Light
Blackberry Smoke will never fit the mold of a mainstream country act the way, say, Midland has done. They love to rock way too much to ever tamp it down permanently. And the aptly named "The Crooked Kind" follows a rollicking, rock & roll path that feels like just the right road. With that said, though, there are moments during "Find A Light" where Blackberry Smoke softens the sonic nicely and naturally. "Medicate My Mind," for instance, rocks to a likeable, gentle groove. »»»
Like An Arrow CD review - Like An Arrow
Blackberry Smoke may never fit into any country music traditionalist's definition of true country music. The guitars are too loud and the there's far more boogie than twang in the act's sound. Nevertheless, this act fits squarely into the description of fine Southern rock. "Like an Arrow" hits all the right stylistic marks. "The Good Life," for instance, doesn't align itself with many of the usual sonic elements of a country song, but its lyric - all about »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
