Blackberry Smoke and Aaron Lewis Announce Fall Tour

Blackberry Smoke

(Gibson) Blackberry Smoke and Aaron Lewis are joining forces for a co-headlining tour this fall. Dubbed the "Sinners and Sanctified Tour," the trek kicks off October 12 in Shreveport, Louisiana, and wraps up on November 17 in Charleston, West Virginia.

Blackberry Smoke's most recent album, Like an Arrow, featured the late Gregg Allman on a track titled "Free on the Wing." Charlie Starr, frontman for the southern rock revivalists, spoke recently with the website Rockbladet about his formative influences.

"I grew up [listening to] bluegrass music and hillbilly music," he said. "Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs. That came from my father. But my mother she liked the Stones, Beatles, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart. And then I found Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin. We never sat down and said we would become a southern rock band. We are just a rock and roll band from the south. I think it's just the way it sounds when we play together." See the tour dates here.
