Special guests include The Steel Woods, who are releasing their new album "On Your Time" today via Thirty Tigers.About "Little Bit Crazy" (written by lead singer Charlie Starr and longtime collaborator Travis Meadows), Starr says, "It's a rock 'n' roll song about a guy and the girl who could be his undoing." The official music video can be viewed here. In advance of the release, the lead single "Dig A Hole" was recently released, about which American Songwriter says that "it highlights the band's trademark blend of blues, Southern rock and Americana that has helped them build a successful career that spans more than two decades," while Whiskey Riff notes that their "distinctive Southern rock sound and top-notch songwriting always come through" and Entertainment Focus speaks of "a tantalizing taste of the musical journey that awaits listeners.The band is on an international headlining tour through next year to celebrate their new music. Newly confirmed stops outside of Germany include Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte, Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Murat Theatre at Old National Centre in Indianapolis, Ogden Theatre in Denver, Uptown Theatre in Kansas City and The Hall in Little Rock, as well as shows in the U.K., Denmark, France, Sweden, Italy and other countries.Produced by Grammy winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell), "Be Right Here" is a timely reminder to be present and live authentically. On the ten tracks - a collection of their signature rock 'n' roll anthems, Americana ballads and country-rock jams - the band celebrates the simple joys of life, the fleeting moments and the small moments of happiness they find along the way.The album was recorded at the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville and at Cobb's Georgia Mae in Savannah. In addition to the band - Charlie Starr (vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals) and Brandon Still (keyboards) - guest musicians include Preston Holcomb (drums), Benji Shanks (guitar) and The Black Bettys. Of the recording process, Starr says, "We always record live together, but this time we had all our amps and drums and everything in the same room. It's just as natural and real as possible. The last album was also very raw, but with this album I remember several moments where I said, 'I think we should do this again,' and Dave said, 'No, leave it like this.' It's magical that way.'"Over the course of their career, Blackberry Smoke has released seven studio albums, including 2021's "You Hear Georgia," which celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band. Rolling Stone wrote, "Blackberry Smoke are a Georgia band through and through...You Hear Georgia just sounds gigantic," while American Songwriter praised, "Blackberry Smoke is still on fire. A testament to that tenacity and an unapologetic ode to a rebellious attitude and tradition. It can be heard in virtually every note and nuance. "In addition to their studio albums, they have released a number of other projects, including the EPs Stoned, The Southern Ground Sessions and Live From Capricorn Studios, and Homecoming: Live In Atlanta, a live album and concert film that reached #1 on Billboard's Americana/Folk Albums chart.Since their formation in 2001, Blackberry Smoke has toured relentlessly and earned a strong and loyal fan base. In addition to their work as musicians, the band is heavily involved in charitable causes and founded the Lana Turner Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports several national foundations working to find a cure for childhood cancer. To date, the band has raised over $1,000,000 for pediatric cancer research. - Be Right Here Tour 2024 Special Guest: The Steel WoodsThis content has been machine translated.
