Blackberry Smoke has released “Believe You Me,”  the song is from the band’s new album, Like An Arrow, which will be released October 14 on 3 Legged Records via Thirty Tigers and is now available for pre-order at the band’s website and at iTunes.

Already receiving acclaim, Rolling Stone recently premiered the album’s lead track, “Waiting For The Thunder,” praising, “Country-Rock’s most ferocious live band…Blackberry Smoke’s often spontaneous concerts evoke the spirit of the Allman Brothers Band.” Both “Waiting for the Thunder” and “Believe You Me” are available as instant downloads with each digital pre-order.

Recorded just outside of the band’s native Atlanta at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, GA, the 12-track album was self-produced and features special guest Gregg Allman on the album’s closing track, “Free On The Wing.”

Of the album, band-member Charlie Starr comments,

“This album is the self-produced culmination of 15 years of trying to plant our flag in the musical landscape. We couldn’t be more proud of it.”

Since their debut in 2001, the 5-piece band—consisting of Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards)—has released four full-length studio albums, including their most recent, 2015’s Holding All the Roses, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #8 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart.

Known for their impressive live performances, Blackberry Smoke has toured relentlessly, building a strong and loyal community of fans. In addition to performing hundreds of headlining shows across the country each year, the band has also toured with artists including Zac Brown Band, Eric Church and ZZ Top. The group will continue their extensive nationwide tour throughout the summer and fall in celebration of the release. See below for complete details.

Beloved by fans, critics and fellow musicians, the band has performed on “The Tonight Show” and “Conan” and received widespread praise from publications including The New York Times, Billboard, the Washington Post and American Songwriter.

Set Sail on the 2nd Annual Outlaw Country Cruise

Outlaw-Country-500x267

The Outlaw Country Cruise returns to the high seas in 2017, celebrating its second annual Caribbean voyage, presented by Sixthman and Steven Van Zandt’s Renegade Circus. Setting sail on February 26 and returning March 2, 2017, the cruise will host over 2,500 fans of Outlaw Country, Southern rock, honky-tonk and Americana as they celebrate raw, rootsy music in state-of-the-art luxury between Tampa, Florida, and Cozumel, Mexico. Over four nights of like-minded community, laid-back memory making and authentic artistry, the beautiful Norwegian Jade will be transformed into a floating music festival complete with five stages and over a dozen acts on the bill so far.

Returning as performers this year are heirs to the Southern rock throne Blackberry Smoke, Cuban-inflected country outsiders The Mavericks, celebrated country-rock poet Lucinda Williams, sharp-tongued individualist Steve Earle & The Dukes, second-generation scion Shooter Jennings & Waymore’s Outlaws, featuring a special appearance by his mother Jessi Colter, the legendary Queen of Outlaw Country.

They’ll be joined by first-time cruisers like West Texas roots rock superhero Joe Ely, hard-scrabble Kentucky troubadour Chris Knight, alt-country ground breakers Old 97’s, Georgia-based drawl rockers Drivin’ N Cryin’ and the pre-war harmonies of mesmerizing duo The Secret Sisters, plus Dale Watson and His Lone Stars, Supersuckers, Bottle Rockets, The Mastersons, Jesse Dayton, Heybale! and more to be announced at a later date.

Music enthusiasts may join the pre-sale HERE and book staterooms before they are available to the general public on June 21. Along with a non-stop schedule of performances, guests will also be treated to once-in-a-lifetime, spur-of-the-moment collaborations, late-night jams, opportunities to meet and spend time with their favorite outlaw stars, attend autograph signings with artists and live recording sessions with Steve Earle, Shooter Jennings, Elizabeth Cook, Dallas Wayne, Roger Alan Wade and Mojo Nixon, who are all hosts on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country channel.

Created and executive produced by E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt, SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country channel features shows hosted by Steve Earle, Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale, Elizabeth Cook, Mojo Nixon, Shooter Jennings, Johnny Knoxville and Roger Alan Wade, Hillbilly Jim and Dallas Wayne.

“I created the Outlaw Country format to include four essential sub-genres that no longer had a place in the modern world — which was totally unacceptable to me —Traditional Country, Outlaw Country, Alternative Country, and Country Rock. I wanted all the in-betweeners to have a home,” said Van Zandt. “SiriusXM came along just in time. Now the greatest country and country-related music ever made, and still being made, is accessible to inspire future generations. And we’re taking it all out on The Outlaw Country Cruise past the three mile legal limit where it belongs!”

A destination of her own, Norwegian Jade offers guests Norwegian Cruise Line’s signature freedom and flexibility to enjoy 11 onboard bars and lounges, 15 dining experiences, one outdoor pool, hot tubs, and a full menu of spa treatments. Guests can enjoy access to other entertainment on the ship as well, whether it’s a game of soccer or basketball on the sports court, a workout in the fitness center or tempting lady luck with a few hands in the casino, Norwegian Jade has you covered. Plus, Outlaws will enjoy a day-long excursion to the picturesque Caribbean island of Cozumel, where golden sandy beaches and world-class scuba diving adventures await.
