When Whiskey Myers was in town a couple of weeks back, we had a conversation about other bands who are kind of like they are. They're pretty much straight up Southern Rock. Not Texas, not Red Dirt, not country. They said one of the bands they really enjoy is Blackberry Smoke.
I've been into a little bit of BBS for the last year or so but haven't really delved deep into their catalogue, but have for sure loved what I've heard so far. Well to my surprise, they're starting to get a lot of airplay on mainstream country radio stations all over the country! This could not thrill me more. If you know anything about me, you know I prefer the more raw, real sound of country music over the bubblegum pop, cliche country music. So for those who haven't heard these guys yet, check out the music video for Blackberry Smoke "Pretty Little Lie."
