Blackberry Smoke 2008 Little Piece Of Dixie

Blackberry Smoke 2008 Little Piece Of Dixie @320 (EP)

Atlanta based Blackberry Smoke continues to grow into the premiere Southern Rock band of America. Over the last 12 months they have shared the stage with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shooter Jennings, Cross Canadian Ragweed and countless others. The band has recently finished recording their sophomore effort “Little Piece Of Dixie” with legendary producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and engineer Justin Niebank.

Blackberry Smoke 2009 Little Piece Of Dixie @VBR

Release Notes:

Country music’s mainstream has seen its fair share of southern rock influenced acts lately, but there always seems to be something missing. While said bands are influenced by the 70’s era of southern rock they still all sound very much like today’s country music. Atlanta’s Blackberry Smoke may be the band to right the ship and bring back the true spirit of an era as they proudly display on their sophomore album Little Piece of Dixie.

This is pure southern rock played the way it should be played as they quickly show you on the rockin’ “Good One Comin’ On,” followed by the gritty guitar riff heavy “Like I Am,” which will instantly have you drawing comparisons to the likes of .38 Special and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The guitars are used up front and prominently to hammer home the songs as they show throughout the album with cuts like “Sanctified Woman,” “I’d Be Lyin’,” “Restless,” and “Shake Your Magnolia, all which lean on the rockin’ in your face guitar riffs. They do take a moment to display their softer side as well with tracks like “Prayer For The Little Man,” which relies on acoustic instrumentation to subtly play along as the vocals and lyrics about being away from the ones you love take center stage.Where most bands today claim influence to the past Blackberry Smoke lives and breathes is.

This is a band and an album you can put on that will have you thinking you just discovered a lost treasure from the 70’s. It’s gritty, it’s raw, it’s Southern Rock as you remember it being played!
