In the past two decades, Black Stone Cherry has set a new standard for Southern rock, revitalizing the tradition with burly riffs and stirring rock hooks. Since their formation in 2001, the group now includes Chris Robertson, vocals/guitar; Ben Wells, guitar/vocals; and John Fred Young, drums along with their new bass player Steve Jewell. Though not blood relatives, the guys grew up together, immersed in the culture of shit-kicking rock n' roll.
The band have blazed their way in establishing a legacy. In the US, BSC's last album, Family Tree, debuted at #8 in the Current Rock Albums, #4 in Current Hard Music, and #21 in Top Current Album. The band's 3 previous studio albums have cracked the Top 10 in the UK. Black Stone Cherry has headlined and rocked arena shows around the world and shared the stage with a diverse roster of superstars, including Alter Bridge, Theory of a Deadman, Def Leppard, Gov't Mule, Nickelback, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Mötorhead, and ZZ Top.
