NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 17, 2015) The guys of Blackberry Smoke had a groundbreaking year, releasing their critically-acclaimed forth studio album, Holding All The Roses,
playing sold-out shows around the world, including shows with legendary
rock band ZZ Top, performing on Conan, appearing on the soundtrack for
EA Sports’ Madden NFL 16, premiering the music video for their
latest single “Rock and Roll Again” on Yahoo, participating in the
sold-out Warren Haynes Christmas Jam and donating $15,000 to CURE
Childhood Cancer and $15,000 to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at
Vanderbilt.

The band is keeping the momentum going into 2016 by kicking the year
off with a headliner spot on the maiden voyage of The Outlaw Country
Cruise, which features performances by Blackberry Smoke, Lucinda
Williams, The Mavericks, Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare and many
more for four rebellious days at sea. The cruise will also host special

About Blackberry Smoke:
Holding All the Roses compellingly captures the energy, attitude, and
honesty that have already helped to make Blackberry Smoke one of
America’s hottest live rock ‘n’ roll outfits, a truly grass-roots
phenomenon with a large and fiercely loyal fan base. The 12-song
set—produced by Grammy-winner Brendan O’Brien, whose previous production
clients have included AC/DC, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen
and Neil Young—showcases the Atlanta-based quintet’s emotion-charged mix
of bluesy rock, gospel soul, and country, with Charlie Starr’s raspy
twang matched by his and Paul Jackson’s snarling guitars, Brandon
Still’s hauntingly expressive organ and piano, and the propulsive
sibling rhythm section of Richard and Brit Turner. The songs’ appeal is
further elevated by the band’s three-part vocal harmonies and elaborate
arrangements that make judicious use of fiddle and added percussion. The
depth displayed throughout Holding All the Roses demonstrates how
Blackberry Smoke has evolved from rough-edged club act to arena-ready
rock ‘n’ roll juggernaut as well as continues to steadily extend and
expand the Southern rock tradition.
