Watch Blackberry Smoke Play The Band’s “Don’t Do It” at Lockn’ 2017
January 22, 2018
With the avalanche of festival lineup announcements in the past couple of weeks, it seems like a fine time to revisit some highlights from last summer's offerings, and Lockn' Festival has just shared one of their own, a pro-shot video of southern rockers Blackberry Smoke playing a raucous rendition of The Band classic "Don't Do It."
The video comes at the kickoff of the Outlaw Country Cruise, which features Blackberry Smoke, and just a few days after the announcement of the band's new album, Find a Light. "Don't Do It" is just a perfect cover choice for the long-haired quintet, employing their good-natured swagger and twang to match the spirit of the legendary Band, with singer and guitarist Charlie Starr leading the way and offering some smooth licks during his solo.
