Official Footage Of Rich Robinson Joining Blackberry Smoke On ‘Wiser Time’
Southern rockers Blackberry Smoke had a special treat in store for the crowd at their Telluride Blues & Brews Festival set last month. The band was joined by fellow festival performer Rich Robinson for a The Black Crowes classic and professionally-shot footage of the guest spot recently surfaced.
Robinson lent a hand to Blackberry Smoke for a scorching “Wiser Time.” Rolling Stone Country spoke with Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke about how the guest spot came together. “If you’re gonna play a song by The Black Crowes, you need to bring your A game. Those guys were one of the best rock & roll bands of the last 20 years. Whenever we do a Crowes song, I always think, ‘Well, we better play it right,'” Starr said. He reached out to Robinson, a fellow native of Cobb County in Georgia, and the pair decided upon “Wiser Time.” While Starr said “we just winged it” about the collaboration, it certainly came together nicely.
