Blackberry Smoke will be appearing with special guests The Allman Betts Band and The Wild Feathers on their extensive Spirit of the South Tour: A Celebration of Southern Rock N’ Roll.

As you might have guessed, The Allman Betts Band takes at least a part of its name from The Allman Brothers Band. The Allman Betts Band consists of the sons of three founding members of The Allman Brothers Band. To honor their family’s legacy, the band will have a new mobile set up on-site at the show that features never-before-seen archival items including handwritten lyrics, family photographs, iconic clothing and instruments played by the band.
