"Things My Father Said", the new video from BLACK STONE CHERRY, can be viewed below.

Commented the band, "This is not just another run-of-the-mill music video for us. This is a true example of how much family and friends means to not only us band guys, but to everyone around the world. When it came time to make this video, we told the director (Andrew Bennett) that this song was very important to us and we wanted NO outside influence or Hollywood theatrics. We wanted raw emotion and feeling... we wanted normal. He was very understanding and respected our wishes, and as you will see, did a terrific job making it everything it needed to be. But while any director or band would love to take credit for this video, it was YOU that made it magical! Our deep thanks and utmost respect goes out to our family, friends, and fans who showed and submitted their photos for this video. The song speaks for itself, but coupled with the faces of real people showing their appreciation and honor for their lost loved ones is something truly out of this world and heart-warming. We will probably never make a more real and emotionally powerful video as this and we're okay with that. We've done it this time and once is all we could ask for. So without further rambling, we again thank each and every person that had a helping hand in making this video possible as it means so much to us. We hope this song and video will enter the hearts of people all over the world and help them in any way possible. After all, that's what we wrote it for! Spread this song to others and send it to everyone you know. We hope it will make people stop and think and take time to appreciate those living around us, and those who have passed away."

"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).
