Black Stone Cherry bridges the gap between the blue collar craftsmanship of dirty, bluesy, ballsy, pedal-to-the-metal Hard Rock steeped in the ancestral lineage of Southern Rock and the warm, broad embrace of the rock radio mainstream. There’s enough boot stomping, soulful meat-and-potatoes in the Kentucky band’s stew to invigorate Middle America, with the melodic chops to conquer the worldwide stage.
The Black Stone Cherry sound is as timeless as a backyard barbecue, a rundown farmhouse or a worn-in pair of Levi’s, but as forward thinking as anything generated by the millennial crowd in the modern age. 2014’s Magic Mountain carried the torch for the brightest moments of Classic Rock history, but it’s no throwback. The energy, enthusiasm and skill of today’s best rock n’ rollers keeps one Black Stone Cherry boot planted in the future, even as they call upon the musical ghosts of the past.
Black Stone Cherry’s fourth full-length album, released in May 2014, added to Black Stone Cherry’s eight triumphant victories on the mainstream rock radio charts, including singles “Me and Mary Jane”, “Dance Girl” and the slow boiling, ultimately explosive “Blow My Mind”.
Black Stone Cherry has maintained the same lineup since the band formed on Robertson’s 16th birthday: June 4th, 2001. Robertson and Young have been buddies since kindergarten. “We’ve known Jon since we were 13,” Robertson explains. “We met Ben a couple of days before we started the band. A band should be more than a singer with some fill-in guys. It’s a group of people with a common goal. It’s like a marriage. You argue back and forth but at the end of the day, you love each other.”
