If you haven’t run into a member of Blackberry Smoke somewhere around our pretty city, then you might be living under a rock. Blackberry Smoke are a bunch of long-haired rebel badasses, who also happen to be some of the nicest bunch of gentlemen in the South. They are bringing their first music festival to the Masquerade Music Park on Sept. 8th with performances by The North Mississippi Allstars, Unknown Hinson, Reynolds & Williams Band, Nathan Nelson & the Entertainment Crackers. They joined us for our 5GB series before their show. Make sure to enter below for your chance to win tickets!
