Blackberry Smoke announces ‘You Hear Georgia’

Album available May 28th

Acclaimed American rock band and proud Georgia natives, Blackberry Smoke, will release their highly anticipated new album, You Hear Georgia, on CD and 2 LP May 28th via Thirty Tigers. Across the album’s ten new songs, Blackberry Smoke continue to embody Georgia’s rich musical legacy as they have for the past two decades, honoring the people, places and sounds of their home state.

“Lyrically, the song is about the South being misunderstood,” states lead vocalist Charlie Starr. “It’s obviously a rough and tumble world, and there’s a lot of bad people. But there’s a lot of good people too. It started with the idea of how people might have a preconceived opinion of you because of a thick Southern accent, then expanded into the reality of how some people just seem to have such a hard time getting along, thanks to political or religious views, or simply what part of the country you come from.”

The album was produced by Dave Cobb [Chris Stapleton] and features special guest appearances by Jamey Johnson and Warren Haynes.

You Hear Georgia follows the release of 2018’s Find A Light, which debuted as the best-selling country and Americana/Folk album in the country, entered at No. 3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart. Released to critical acclaim, NPR Music praised, “pushes the envelope while providing that famous Blackberry Smoke autonomy, delivered with soulful vocals, haunting harmonies and kick ass songs,” while Guitar World declared, “one of the hottest and most exciting acts around.”

Their music has also been prominently featured in the hit television show, Yellowston” and they’ve performed on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly. In addition to their work as musicians, Blackberry Smoke remains committed to charitable work and has raised nearly $500,000 benefiting children’s cancer research.
