Blackberry Smoke has evolved from rough-edged club act to arena-ready rock ‘n’ roll juggernauts, while steadily extending and expanding the Southern rock tradition. The Atlanta quintet has never been a band that stands still. Since the group’s formation in 2000, the band has never shied away from hard work, playing more than 250 shows a year and building an ever-expanding audience on the strength of its live shows. In addition to winning fans and friends throughout the United States, they’ve toured Europe multiple times and performed for the first time ever in Australia in 2016 to sold-out crowds. Along the way, Blackberry Smoke has found time to record a handful of independent releases, including the albums Bad Luck Ain’t No Crime, Little Piece of Dixie and The Whippoorwil, plus a pair of EPs, the concert DVD “Live at the Georgia Theatre,” the live CD/DVD set Leave A Scar and Holding All the Roses, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No. 7 on the Rock Albums chart, proof of the band’s universality. The songs on Blackberry Smoke’s sixth album, Like an Arrow show just how far this authentic American rock band has come as the accomplished group of musicians tackles a diverse set of new ideas, sounds and territories, long after most bands with half the success might have settled into a well-worn groove. Aaron Lewis, the Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter made a name for himself as a founding member and frontman of Staind. While Lewis has been performing solo acoustic shows since he was a teenager, it was in 2011 that he released his first solo EP, "Town Line" and made the jump to country music. The record featured the song "Country Boy" with George Jones, Charlie Daniels and Chris Young. Lewis’ first full solo album, "The Road," was released in 2012. The first single, "Endless Summer" appeared on the country charts.
