My wife, who’s off in West By God Virginia this week, turned me on to this Atlanta-based act, which I’ve somehow missed. The song could be my personal old-guy anthem, but in any event, if you like Southern Rock, watch every second of this, maybe twice. It’s Blackberry Smoke, performing “Ain’t Much Left Of Me.” Really phenomenal.
