Blackberry Smoke Debuts New “One Horse Town” Performance Video

Blackberry Smoke

Acclaimed American rock band Blackberry Smoke is debuting a new live performance video of their hit song “One Horse Town” today. Watch/share HERE.  

Originally released in 2012 on the band’s acclaimed album The Whippoorwill, “One Horse Town” is one of Blackberry Smoke’s most popular songs. Of the track, The New York Times declares, “One of the finest tradition-minded country songs…takes the familiar narrative of a rural oasis and upends it,” while Rolling Stone praises, “stirring country blues lament…a song that goes against the grain of contemporary country’s penchant for small-town anthems.” 

The performance video comes from the band’s new project Homecoming: Live In Atlanta, a live album and concert film, which will be released on November 15. Recorded at their annual “Brothers and Sisters Holiday Homecoming” show at Atlanta’s Tabernacle last November, both the album and film—directed by Lagan Sebert and Ted Roach—are now available for pre-order. In advance of the release, the film’s official trailer can be viewed HERE.  

Over the past six years, Blackberry Smoke has raised more than $350,000 to benefit children’s cancer research through a variety of “Brothers and Sisters” events such as the Holiday Homecoming shows, the “Brothers and Sisters Reunion Weekend” in Maryville, TN and their recent Ride For CURE event hosted by Tom Glavine. The seventh annual “Brothers and Sisters Holiday Homecoming” will once again take place this fall at Atlanta’s Tabernacle on November 29 and 30. 

Of the project, lead singer Charlie Starr shares, “We are really excited to have everyone experience an Atlanta Homecoming show at the Tabernacle. With this live album and film, we tried to capture that special energy. We feel that Homecoming lets you hear and see how much fun we have at those shows.” 

The release features songs from across the band’s acclaimed career including several from their latest full-length album, Find A Light. The album debuted as the best-selling Country and Americana/Folk album in the country, entered at #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #2 on the BillboardAmericana/Folk Albums chart. Of the album, NPR Music praises, “…Find a Light pushes the envelope while providing that famous Blackberry Smoke autonomy, delivered with soulful vocals, haunting harmonies and kick ass songs.” Following the album’s release, Blackberry Smoke returned to the studio and recorded The Southern Ground Sessions as an accompaniment to 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. 

Known for their electric live shows, the Atlanta-based band will continue to tour extensively throughout 2019 with upcoming stops at Jackson’s Mississippi State Fairgrounds, Little Rock’s Robinson Center, Jacksonville’s Florida Theatre and Key West’s Key West Amphitheater among many others. They will also perform select dates supporting Guns N’ Roses and Tedeschi Trucks Band. See below for complete details. 

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.
