BLACK STONE CHERRY has selected "the southern bluesy love track" "Please Come In" as the second single from its sophomore album, "Folklore and Superstition". "We're very excited about this song being our next single as we've shot a KILLER video for it," the band says. "Seriously… you won't believe it!"
"Folklore and Superstition" sold 13,600 in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 28 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee at Black Bird Studios, which is owned and operated by country music star Martina McBride. It was produced and mixed by veteran Bob Marlette (OZZY OSBOURNE, SALIVA).
BLACK STONE CHERRY's "Blind Man" video was shot on July 10 in Louisville, Kentucky at the famous Waverly Hills Sanatorium.
