Blackberry Smoke Reveal ‘Sunrise in Texas’ Music Video
Blackberry Smoke have revealed the music video for their song "Sunrise in Texas." The song is the eighth track on the group's new album, Like an Arrow, released in early October through 3 Legged Records.
The "Sunrise in Texas" video opens with shots of desert scenery and images of the desert wildlife. A woman enters the picture, throwing a lamp into the desert sand and taking to the road in her bare feet. She appears in a number of scenes throughout the clip, as do the Blackberry Smoke members.
"Sunrise in Texas" includes lyrics such as "There's a young girl on the street / Ain't got no shoes on her feet / Don't know where she's gonna find her next meal," and it's clear that both the song and its accompanying clip aim to bring attention to the bigger issues in the world; it's a point that's made exceptionally clear with the lyrics "There's a world goin' on outside the world I'm in."

Following its release, Like an Arrow debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard country charts.
“This album is the self-produced culmination of 15 years of trying to plant our flag in the musical landscape,” says Blackberry Smoke member Charlie Starr in a press release. “We couldn’t be more proud of it.”
"Sunrise in Texas," as well as the rest of Like an Arrow, is available on Blackberry Smoke’s website. Fans can also find a list of the band’s upcoming tour dates on their site as well.
