Blackberry Smoke is an Atlanta band who has given new life to the phrase "southern rock." After over a decade of slagging it out on the road, the group finally got some shine when Zac Brown signed them to his Southern Ground label and released 2012's The Whippoorwill. There's something here for everyone: soulful ballads, arena rock, and full-bodied country jams. With plenty of Georgia charm and lavishly thick accents, they're sure to win over even the most stalwart cosmopolitan crowds.
