Blackberry Smoke will perform a series of stripped down shows this spring as part of their newly confirmed, Break It Down Tour, the band’s first-ever acoustic tour. The newly announced shows celebrate the release of Blackberry Smoke’s new acoustic EP, The Southern Ground Sessions, which was released last fall. The EP, which was recently named one of the “10 Best Country EPs of 2018” by Rolling Stone, continues to receive critical acclaim.
Blackberry Smoke is Charlie Starr (vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards). Since their debut in 2004, the band has independently released six full-length records and has toured relentlessly, building a strong and loyal community of fans. In addition to their work as musicians, Blackberry Smoke remains committed to charitable work and has raised nearly $200,000 benefiting children’s cancer research.
