Hear Blackberry Smoke new song “You Hear Georgia”:
Singer Charlie Starr talked about the song in an statement:
“Lyrically, the song is about the South being misunderstood,” singer Charlie Starr said in a statement. “It’s obviously a rough and tumble world, and there’s a lot of bad people. But there’s a lot of good people, too. It started with the idea of how people might have a preconceived opinion of you because of a thick Southern accent.”
“Then expanded into the reality of how some people just seem to have such a hard time getting along, thanks to political or religious views, or simply what part of the country you come from.”
