You can call Blackberry Smoke's music southern rock and you wouldn't be wrong. Or you could call it country and you wouldn't be wrong, either. But you would be selling both the band and its legion of fans short. With influences that run the gamut from country to bluegrass to gospel and yes, southern rock, Blackberry Smoke is more than the sum of its diverse parts.
