Blackberry Smoke travels to Rockford, IL on Sunday, March 16 on their “Break It Down Tour.” The band’s first-ever acoustic tour supports the release of their new acoustic EP – The Southern Ground Sessions and features stripped-down versions of five album tracks as well as a rendition of Tom Petty’s “You Got Lucky” featuring Amanda Shires. It was recently named one of the “10 Best Country EPs of 2018” by Rolling Stone.
About Find A Light
Blackberry Smoke’s sixth studio album, Find A Light, was released last April and debuted as the best-selling Country and Americana/Folk album in the country. It entered at #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart. Of the album, NPR Music praises, “… Find A Light pushes the envelope while providing that famous Blackberry Smoke autonomy, delivered with soulful vocals, haunting harmonies and kick ass songs.”
