Blackberry Smoke touched down in their home state of Georgia for their annual holiday concert. Last Friday night, Nov. 24, the ensemble performed at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta. The holiday concert was jam-packed with special guests, including Larkin Poe’s Rebecca and Megan Lovell, sister act The Black Bettys, Tyler Bryant, and more.

Blackberry Smoke kicked off their 21-song set with “You Hear Georgia” from their 2021 album of the same name. The country-rock septet then ran through their extensive catalog, pulling tunes from their albums The Whippoorwill, You Hear Georgia, Find a Light, Little Piece of Deluxe, Be Right Here, and Like An Arrow. Throughout Blackberry Smoke’s two-hour gig, they welcomed support from the aforementioned Black Bettys, comprised of Sherie and Sherita Murphy, on vocals and percussion throughout the entire show.

Midway through the set, Blackberry Smoke performed “Let Me Down Easy,” at which time they welcomed support from Rebecca and Megan Lovell, who joined in on mandolin (Rebecca Lovell) and slide steel guitar (Megan Lovell) while accompanying the band throughout the harmonies. The Peach State-natives continued the show with fan favorites “Everybody Knows She’s Mine’’ and “Ain’t the Same” before welcoming another special guest to the stage, Lana Turner, the daughter of Blackberry Smoke’s drummer Brit Turner, for a rendition of “Little Bit Crazy,” a tune off of the band’s upcoming album Be Right Here, expected in 2024.     

Blackberry Smoke followed up with another fan-favorite, “Waiting for the Thunder,” off their 2016 album, Like An Arrow. The ensemble continued with a run-through of “The Whippoorwill” and “Ain’t Got the Blues” before bringing in another set of guests, guitarists Christian Gray and Spencer Jackson, to the stage for a performance of “Morningside.” 

After ending their main set with “Old Scarecrow,” Blackberry Smoke returned onstage, accompanied by the Lovell sisters and Bryant for a rendition of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” The night ended with “Ain’t Much Left Of Me.”
