Black Stone Cherry
Black Stone Cherry formed in 2001 and consists of Chris Robertson (lead vocals, lead guitar), Ben Wells (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Jon Lawhon (bass guitar, backing vocals), and John Fred Young (drums, backing vocals).
The Kentucky based band began when friends Chris and John began playing together when they were teenagers. Jon and Ben joined them soon after, and in 2006 they released their eponymous debut album.
Gaining notoriety in their hometown of Edmonton, Kentucky, Black Stone Cherry released a strictly limited live CD from their show at London Astoria (now closed) in 2008. They also brought out their second studio album Folklore and Superstition and released the singles "Blind Man," "Please Come In” and "Soulcreek".
Black Stone Cherry went on to support heavy metal outfit Def Leppard and British hard-rock band Whitesnake on their UK tour.
They also brought out their third album Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea which was recorded in LA with producer Howard Benson.
