Every band started the same….small. At one point, they were all local bands playing to empty bars where the attendees were the bartenders. That’s the beauty of making it big; remembering how it started. I love being “Atlanta’s Rock Ambassador” because I get the honor of supporting the best talent in Atlanta and witnessing them at their start and following along with the journey. So many great bands have come out of Atlanta, such as Mastodon, Collective Soul, Tetrarch, Sevendust, The Black Crowes, etc. Another one of those great hometown bands that made it big is Blackberry Smoke! if you have never seen a live Blackberry Smoke show, you are missing out. Put it on your bucket list!

They just released a new single, “You See Georgia.” You got to love music that pays homage to the home state. This song is so good…check it out below!
