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

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 »»»
Holding All the Roses CD review - Holding All the Roses
With a new label backing them, Blackberry Smoke have distilled their sound to produce an album of songs that reflect the image that they have so carefully cultivated. When they were on Zac Brown's Southern Ground label, they released an exciting album full of country rock anthems that explored the depths of Southern Rock, mainstream rock, folk and even hints of soul music, much like the music of Brown himself. After a gap filler live release, they have returned with a collection of original tracks. »»»
The Whippoorwill CD review - The Whippoorwill
From their southern rock sound to the long hair and beards in the sepia liner photo, Blackberry Smoke appear to be the perfect new discovery for hardcore Lynyrd Skynyrd fans. While that may be true, a closer listen to the Georgia band's new album (their debut on Zac Brown's SG label) shows a surprising depth and variety that proves that they shouldn't be pigeonholed. The 13-track album showcases a band adept at '70s style rock and roll, the blues, Americana and Red Dirt country »»»
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: Lambert refuses to rest on laurels – Watching this stop on Miranda Lambert's "Livin' Like Hippies Tour," one is struck by just how many great songs the country singer/songwriter already has in her repertoire. With most artists, it's relatively easy to guess which song a performer will choose to close a show. But Lambert has so many winners to pick from, many... »»»
Concert Review: DBT rocks on – Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»

Matt Hectorne's new album - his third solo effort - offers another example of the rewards that can come through the joy of discovery. While Hectorne makes no attempt to bend the boundaries as far as a patented Americana sound is concerned, the success he achieves here is the result of him doing quite the opposite, that is, sounding like a revered veteran who mastered the form quite quickly in his career.  »»»
Hallelujah Nights CD review - Hallelujah Nights
LANCO's "Greatest Love Story" is a radio single saturated in undeniable warmth and sweetness. But then, the attitude in "We Do" reeks of Florida Georgia Line and the chorus to "Singin' at The Stars" also brings country music's most annoying duo to mind. LANCO is a new act, and the jury's still on just which direction this five-piece will go. »»»
