Black Stone Cherry have premiered a new song and video from their upcoming album Kentucky. The Rambler‘, the closing track on the album, is a richly melodic co-write with former Shinedown guitarist Jasin Todd that takes stock of some of the costs that come with the band’s chosen life, but also offers comfort to those left back home.

Check it out below:

“It’s just about heartbreak and being a true rebel spirit at heart,” explains drummer John Fred Young. “We all knew the song was special, and when we were in the studio writing it Chris lost his grandpa, and he got pretty emotional when he was putting his vocal on it. It’s a really wonderful song.”

‘s fifth studio album, Kentucky, will be released on April 1 via Mascot Label Group. The band recorded the effort at Barrick Recording in Glasgow, Kentucky. Taking a “back-to-the-roots” approach, the CD was produced in the same way and same place as BLACK STONE CHERRY‘s eponymous debut album, which broke the band out of the small southern backwater and onto the world stage.
