Blackberry Smoke is set to release The Southern Ground Sessions EP on Oct. 26. Created as an accompaniment to their latest album, Find A Light, the six-song EP was recorded live at Southern Ground studio in Nashville and features acoustic versions of five album tracks as well as a rendition of Tom Petty’s “You Got Lucky” featuring Amanda Shires. The upcoming project also features a collaboration with singer/songwriter Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers).
Of the EP, lead singer Charlie Starr comments, “It felt really cool to come back to Southern Ground Studios and play music with some good friends. It was like stripping it down and playing in the living room.”
Blackberry Smoke, which includes Starr (vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards), will continue to tour throughout 2018, including two shows at New York’s Irving Plaza on Sep. 7 and 8 as well as their newly announced “Brothers and Sisters Holiday Homecoming Show” at Atlanta’s The Tabernacle on Nov. 23. In addition to the North American dates, the band will also perform several shows this fall as part of the U.K./European leg of the “Find A Light” tour.
