EDITORS’ NOTES

Blackberry Smoke came blasting out of Atlanta’s country-rock underground when their third album, Whippoorwill, was issued on Zac Brown's label. On the follow-up, the Georgia boys continue to define Southern rock of the ‘10s and embrace their Dixie roots—the guitar licks are full of bluesy bends and downhome twang ("Wish in One Hand," "Lay It All on Me”). But we love Holding All the Roses most for bringing to mind the classic rock riffage of vinyl gods like 38 Special with carefully honed hooks and concise songcraft.
