Atlanta’s Blackberry Smoke has forged their way through the music industry by doing things their own way and on their own terms. 

The first independently released artist to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album charts, the band continue touring in support of their seventh studio album, You Hear Georgia, released in 2021. 

By playing Southern rock in the vein of Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band, Blackberry Smoke have made their name through good old-fashioned hard work and touring. 

With a live presence that is rivaled by few, Blackberry Smoke will make the Sweetwater Performance Pavilion feel like it is south of the Mason-Dixon Line, if just for one night.
