Blackberry Smoke has kind of been an unlikely success since they released their latest album last year.
My first introduction to the band was in the summer of last year when they played with the Zac Brown Band at the local country festival here in the town where I live. There is no doubt they have talent. Their sound is really interesting too. I think that’s what Zac appreciated when he signed these guys.
They’re different, but really good.
They released the album last year and they’re just now releasing the first single. It’s a backwards way of doing things, but let’s see if it works.
Pretty Little Lies – Blackberry Smoke
The folks that listen to country radio (that’s me) don’t really care where an artist or band comes from. All we care about is that they have a great song with a catchy melody.
The guys in Blackberry Smoke have a really catchy song with this one. It seems to be about a woman that has chosen another. The guy is realizing he’s the one that’s lost out on her decision. It’s hard to tell really what happens. She can’t seem to make up her mind and the guys are caught up in the entire mess.
It’s all about lies and the way things work sometimes. There are some folks out there that just can’t seem to make up their mind about things like this.
The guys have a song on the country charts for the first time in their lives. Let’s see how high they can take it.
What do you think?
