Description

Chart-topping American rockers Blackberry Smoke add another chapter to their already-impressive body of work with the brand new album You Hear Georgia. The new record was produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile) and marks the band’s 20th anniversary in the original music game. It also feels like an homage to Blackberry Smoke’s home, meant to convey the huge musical legacy that the great state of Georgia has contributed to American culture.

You Hear Georgia honors the people, places, and sounds that are the roots of the band as a unit and of its members. Band personnel Charlie Starr (vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards) turn in a slew of hot takes on these tracks. The album also features special guests Jamey Johnson and Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule) as well as background vocals from The Black Bettys.

Together since 2001, Blackberry Smoke has toured and made music relentlessly, building a massive following the real way. The band deftly blends influences including Tom Petty, the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Hank Williams Jr. into a style of American music that is as much about meaningful songwriting as it is riffs and solos. They’ve worked with ZZ Top, The Zac Brown Band, and Eric Church, and have seen their last four albums breach the top ten on the Billboard Country Charts, two of them ascending to Number One.
