Blackberry Smoke Opening Up For Zac Brown Band Friday in Syracuse
The band may be new to you but they already have fans in the music business, from The Marshall Tucker Band and ZZ Top to Lynyrd Skynyrd and George Jones. They were even asked to play for Jones on his 80th birthday. Their songs are featured in video games (EA Sports’ NASCAR 08) and films (Swing Vote), as well.
Blackberry Smoke is a mix of gospel, bluegrass, arena rock, soul and more than a touch of outlaw country. The band is as blue collar as the bandanas they wear.
