Of the new song, lead singer Charlie Starr shares, “Warren and I were on the phone one night during the lockdown. We were talking about how much writing we were doing since we couldn’t actually leave the house, so we decided to write some stuff together. ‘All Rise Again’ was the first thing that came out.”

Marking the band’s 20th anniversary, You Hear Georgia pays homage to the band’s deep respect for their roots. The album, produced by follow Georgian  Across the album’s ten songs, Blackberry Smoke continues to embody Georgia’s rich musical legacy as they have for the past two decades, honoring the people, places and sounds of the state.

As Starr explains of the album’s title track, “Lyrically, the song is about the South being misunderstood. 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.”
