Blackberry Smoke, Georgia’s sensational southern rock and outlaw country artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Tabernacle Atlanta!
The band was formed in Atlanta in 2000 and it consists of Charlie Starr (lead vocals, lead guitar, rhythm guitar), Richard Turner (bass, backing vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (lead guitar, rhythm guitar, backing vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards). They’ve had a stellar career with 4 studio albums, 1 live album, 3 extended plays, 4 singles, and 5 music videos. They’ve also performed with renowned artists and bands such as Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Gov’t Mule. Their latest album (Like an Arrow) comes out on October 14th 2016 and Charlie explains in an interview, “In the past, we never really had the resources to make the kind of records we wanted to make. But this time around, everything lined up, and we were able to create an album that covers a lot of musical ground and works as a listening experience from beginning to end. "The whole experience was refreshing and spontaneous. We got it done pretty quickly, but it didn't feel like we were in a hurry. We chose the songs to represent the different things that we do, and we took the time to work out the running order and figure out how the album should flow.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists build on the Southern rock template, with a dose of outlaw country and a little bit of bluegrass, gospel, and R&B mixed in!
