Radio Chatter with Charlie Starr from Blackberry Smoke Download

Download April 20th, 2018

Charlie Starr from Blackberry Smoke joins me today. If you’ve never heard BBS, and you like the southern rock/rock/country, give them a listen. Their new album ‘Find A Light’ is out and it’s a pretty good indication of what this band is all about.

He talks about a fellow rocker who helped him write four tracks on the record, and who he may try to bring out of retirement for some shows. We talk about a few different songs on the record, touring, as well as a huge festival they’re playing this Fall. He tells me about his sobriety and why he decided to give up the booze, whether BBS is a southern rock band or not, his keys to success, and more. Charlie was really cool to talk to. Killer band!
