Little Piece of Dixie

Blackberry Smoke’s knockout blend of Southern rock and country, demonstrated on songs like “Good One Coming On,” would be right at home on any Shooter Jennings, Hank Williams Jr. or Montgomery Gentry album. “Bottom of This” and “I’d Be Lyin’” suggest these guys can turn a stone-country phrase (If I swear that I’ll never drink too much, I’d be lyin’ . . . lyin’ next to you). They also offer a swampy take on “Who Invented the Wheel” that skews grittier than the version contained on Trisha Yearwood’s Jasper County, and instill a surprising bluegrass influence throughout “Prayer for the Little Man.”
