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: X keeps it fresh an an open wound – X did not celebrate its 40th anniversary with much ballyhoo. There were no celebrity special guests. Not much reminiscing. Instead, the band rocked hard, like they've been doing for the past four decades, which was more than party enough. Singer/bassist John Doe mentioned at one point how much this city has changed. Tonight's venue was the... »»»
Concert Review: Combs shows he has something to offer – Luke Combs rode very high into Beantown. After all, he played a show that sold-out a 2,500-person venue super fast. And the North Carolina native appeared during the same week he scored his second consecutive chart topper, "When It Rains It Pours." But Combs didn't rest on his laurels during a satisfying show. Combs may wear a baseball... »»»

Texoma Shore CD review - Texoma Shore
Blake Shelton's 11th studio album finds The Voice advisor in a contented, one might even say homey, frame of mind. The opening track and first single "I'll Name the Dogs" sets the tone. It's a rollicking ode to domesticity that manages to make household chore distribution ("You find the spot and I'll find the money / You be the pretty and I'll be the funny") both romantic and amusing.  »»»
Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts CD review - Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts
Kenny Chesney's "Live in No Shoes Nation" accurately recreates an experience of seeing the diminutive party animal live. Chesney has found an extremely lucrative niche as country music's Jimmy Buffett (although much of Buffett's island-y pop music appeals to many of today's non-discerning country music listeners). »»»

There's nothing lovelier in this world than the sound of human voices huddled in harmony.
