Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke

Being a rock star ain’t always easy. Blackberry Smoke vocalist/guitarist Charlie Starr posted some details about a recent BBS show in Fort Payne, Alabama on the band’s website. He even included a setlist.

Posted by Charlie Starr on the BBS website forum……..thanks for sharing, Charlie!

This show (Fort Payne, Al, 9-18-10) was a little crazy, friends. The whole schedule of events was running about 2 hours behind, so we went onstage about 6 pm. There were no lights on the stage under the tent, so as darkness approached, Big Kev reminded me that if we didn’t cut it short, we’d all be in the dark. Also, some poor fella collapsed in the street outside the tent during our set. I hope he’s ok. Anyhow, here’s how it went down……

Like I Am
I’d Be Lyin
Memphis Special
Bottom of This
Sleepin Dogs
Good One
Restless
Up In Smoke
Pallet on Your Floor
Son of the Bourbon
Freedom Song

Sailing Southern Ground
September 2 – 6, 2010 | Tampa to Grand Cayman

Sailing Southern Ground, a floating festival hosted by Zac Brown Band, will be home to 2000 friends that value family, food, and authentic music above all else.  For those of you who have been a part of the ZBB experience, you get it.  You know that emotional performances, spur-of-the-moment collaborations, amazing new friendships, and incredible stories are never far around the corner.  Rather than a two-hour concert that you’ll talk about for a week, we wanted to help bring you a vacation that you’ll talk about for a lifetime.  Join us for Labor Day weekend 2010, as Sailing Southern Ground will be bringing fans together from all over the globe for one hell of a good time.

Lucky fan with 7 Day Binge guitarist Kenny Olsen

We’ll be departing from Tampa, FL on September 2nd, 2010, visiting beautiful Grand Cayman, and returning to Tampa on September 6th.  While on board, you can expect an incredible main stage show from your host Zac Brown Band, with many more musicians to be added later.   When you’re not listening to pure musical performances, you’ll be hanging out with your closest friends on a beautiful cruise ship, lounging in crystal clear pools or at one of a dozen bars, eating in one of many on board restaurants, enjoying 24-hour room service, and maybe even gambling in the full service casino.
