Black Stone Cherry: Kentucky
Kentucky rockers spread some more love
Bands with a Southern twang are having a moment in modern rock’n’roll no matter their location, from the swaggering soul of The Temperance Movement to the country boogie of Blackberry Smoke.
Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry have had their own unique take on the twang since their first album 10 years ago: catchy Deep South anthems with a hard rock edge. Aside from becoming slightly more commercial since their self-titled debut, little has changed in the quartet’s sound, and it’s business as usual on album number five. They’ve always specialised in singalong anthems that are equal parts heavy and melodic, and there’s plenty here to rival live favourites like Blame It On The Boom Boom and Rain Wizard.
