Blackberry Smoke Premieres “Medicate My Mind”

Blackberry Smoke’s new acoustic version of “Medicate My Mind” is premiering today. Stream/share HERE and watch the song’s video HERE. The track comes from the band’s new EP, The Southern Ground Sessions, which will be released October 26 and is now available for pre-order.

Created as an accompaniment to their acclaimed new album, Find A Light, the 6-song EP was recorded live at Southern Ground studio in Nashville, TN and features acoustic versions of five album tracks as well as a rendition of Tom Petty’s “You Got Lucky” featuring Amanda Shires.

In advance of the release, the EP’s lead track, “Run Away From It All,” recently premiered. Of the song, Rolling Stone states, “…this unplugged version of ‘Run Away From It All’ downsizes Blackberry Smoke’s classic-rock stomp into a campfire-worthy singalong. The band’s harmonies take center stage, while their acoustic guitars—pinch-hitting for the band’s dueling electrics—provide an appropriate setting for a song about getting away from the noise of the modern world.” Listen/share HERE. Additionally, the album track “Mother Mountain,” featuring Oliver Wood, was released earlier this summer. Watch/share the video HERE.

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.”

In addition to their work as musicians, Blackberry Smoke has remained committed to charitable work—most recently teaming up with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to raise money and awareness for the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The band pledges to match up to $50,000 in donations and has created a special page where friends and fans can contribute to the cause and learn more about the organization: www.blackberrysmoke.com/choa.
