The DVD continues to celebrate Blackberry Smoke’s acclaimed new album Like An Arrow, which is out now on 3 Legged Records via Thirty Tigers (purchase here). The album, which debuted at No. 1 on both Billboard’s Country Albums and Americana Albums charts as well as No. 3 on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart, continues to receive widespread critical acclaim.

American Songwriter praises, “…Blackberry Smoke fills the bill for the next generation of gutsy, heartfelt and honest Southeast rocking with plenty of talent, tons of drive and no apologies,” while the Boston Globe asserts, “…the needle can be dropped on Like an Arrow until its grooves become as well-worn as the classic albums that inspired this band of country-rock workhorses,” while Saving Country Music declares, “Blackberry Smoke is the band right now carrying on the authentic Southern rock identity in modern music.”

The band is currently in the midst of an extensive nationwide tour. See below for complete itinerary. Recent performances include their annual hometown show at Atlanta’s The Tabernacle, where proceeds from the tour’s nightly meet and greets were donated to Children’s Cancer Research. Additionally, the band recently performed the album’s single, “Waiting For The Thunder,” on CBS’s NCIS: New Orleans (watch HERE) as well as on the BBC’s “Later…with Jools Holland (watch HERE). Moreover, the official music video for “Sunrise in Texas” premiered exclusively at CMT (watch HERE).

Recorded just outside of the band’s native Atlanta at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, GA, the 12-track album was self-produced and features special guest Gregg Allman on the album’s closing track, “Free On The Wing.”

Since their debut in 2001, the 5-piece band—consisting of Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards)—has released four full-length studio albums.
