Blackberry Smoke Share New Song, ‘Best Seat in the House’ [LISTEN]
Where there's "Blackberry Smoke," there's most definitely fire, and the group has shared an uproarious new song. With its youthfully rebellious lyrics and powerhouse guitarwork, "Best Seat in the House," off of the upcoming release Find a Light, makes for a great summertime soundtrack.
Despite being about wanting what you can't have, the song has an obvious optimistic vibe, in part due to the guitar sounds and fast-moving rhythm. Lead singer Charlie Starr sings about holding out for better luck in the chorus: "We all want we ain't got / Some of us have, and some have not / Everything I got coming to me / Life, love, money in the land of the free / All my life, I've been turned out / One of these days / I'll get the best seat in the house."

"That song is sort of a sarcastic complaint," Starr says in a press release about the meaning behind the track. "We all want what we ain't got. It's not enough to get in, people want front row."
"Best Seat in the House" is Track No. 6 on the sixth full-length studio album from the five-piece band. The album features 12 other tracks, either written or co-written by Starr. Find a Light is set for release on April 6, but "Best Seat in the House" is available on iTunes now. The band has a lengthy tour planned for 2018; a full schedule is available on their website.
