CMT.com and Landshark Lager have joined forces to present musicians from Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Artists label in a three-part, online performance series, Southern Ground Live. The series launched today with Blackberry Smoke, the Georgia-based Southern rock band.
Blackberry Smoke performed selections from its new album The Whippoorwill, including “Six Ways to Sunday,” “Pretty Little Lie,” “Everybody Knows She’s Mine” and “Ain’t Got the Blues.” Jamey Johnson joined the group onstage and contributed vocals to a medley of “Yesterday’s Wine” and “Still Doin’ Time.”
New episodes of Southern Ground Live will feature performances from Sonia Leigh (Aug. 29), and Nic Cowan (Sept. 13) on CMT.com. The series, which can be viewed here, follows Southern Ground artists as they make music on their own terms.
Margaritaville in Nashville serves as host to the Southern Ground Live performance series, which is produced by Lewis Bogach.
