Blackberry Smoke to perform at Artpark on July 1


Tue, May 11th 2021 01:00 pm

Part of ‘Coors Light Concerts Series’
Tickets on sale Friday, May 14

Blackberry Smoke will perform on the Artpark Amphitheater stage with special guest Nick Perri and the Underground at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 1. The concert is part of the “Coors Light Concerts Series.”

Blackberry Smoke – Charlie Starr (vocals, guitar), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums) and Brandon Still (keyboards) – has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk.

Since their debut in 2004, the Atlanta-based band has independently released six full-length albums and toured relentlessly, building a strong and loyal community of fans. The band has also had success with sales of each of their last albums. In 2015, they released “Holding All the Roses,” which was the first independently released record to hit No. 1 on the Billboard country album charts in modern history. “Like An Arrow” followed in 2016, again putting the band at No. 1. 2018 saw the band outsell all other releases with the self-produced “Find A Light,” plus the acoustic accompaniment “The Southern Ground Sessions.”

In 2019, Blackberry Smoke released “Homecoming: Live in Atlanta,” a recorded performance from their annual show in the band's hometown. It also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Americana/folk sales charts. This became the fourth consecutive album for Blackberry Smoke to be atop the charts.

In addition to their success domestically, the band has also had No. 1 rock, independent and U.K. Americana album chart releases in the U.K. and Europe.
