(Webster and Assoc) The South has risen again with the signing of Atlanta's Blackberry Smoke to BamaJam Records, a new imprint of Stroudavarious Records. The imprint's first release will be Blackberry Smoke's sophomore album, Little Piece Of Dixie.

Touted by Brian Johnson of AC/DC as "a band that will never go hungry", Blackberry Smoke is comprised of brothers, Richard (bass/vocals) and Brit Turner (drums), with Paul Jackson and Charlie Starr on guitar and vocals. The band is brimming with showmanship and attitude with tight vocals and southern fried lyrics. Fans that have been coming to their shows for years will be delighted that the energy of Smoke's live performance translates seamlessly to the new album.

Country music has seen its share of southern rock influenced acts recently, but it hasn't seen anything like Blackberry Smoke. Where other bands claim influence by the past, Blackberry Smoke lives and breathes those influences. "This is best live band in the South," says James Stroud, CEO of Stroudavarious Records. "Their show is beyond belief; just awesome," Stroud says of the band that has shared the stage with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shooter Jennings, Cross Canadian Ragweed and others.

With the loud and proud Little Piece Of Dixie, the long-haired boys of Blackberry Smoke bring back the true spirit of the southern rock era. The album, which was recorded with legendary producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and engineer Justin Niebank, has the instant familiarity of some of the best old records.

Blackberry Smoke joins an impressive roster at Stroudavarious Records that includes hit-makers Darryl Worley, Anthony Smith, LoCash Cowboys, Richie McDonald, Shea Fisher and others.

With Little Piece Of Dixie, you'll feel like you've discovered a comfortable old friend; a lost treasure from the 70's. It's gritty. It's raw. It's southern rock as it was meant to be.
