Black Stone Cherry
This collection of southern boys are not the most original band in the world. They’ll never be accused of being the most musically gifted fellas in the world. Certainly, no one will ever listen to them and think, “wow, that’s really cutting edge music”. To the contrary though, release in and release out, the same thought comes to mind when you hear them. “Man, this fuckin’ rocks!” Showcasing a lot more depth in songwriting as well as growth within the confines of what they already did extremely well, Black Stone Cherry’s KENTUCKY shines brightly in a catalog that was already filled with musical floodlights.
