Blackberry Smoke are a band out of Georgia that contend with an old notion that a band of its stature needs to fit into some neat marketing box of yesteryear. Are they a country band? A rock band? A southern rock band? When I sat down with Charlie Starr, the front man of Blackberry Smoke, I was excited to hear that he defines them as a rock n roll band, who I suggest make a slew of great music, no matter the style or genre. We sat down and talked about their sound, their latest record “Like an Arrow”, an awesome video they’ve done with Bob Weir and much more.
