BlackHawk exploded onto the country music landscape in 1993 with their self-titled album and Top 10 hit single Goodbye Says It All. Three more hit singles followed Every Once In A While, I Sure Can Smell The Rain and That s Just About Right, propelling the album to platinum status. BlackHawk maintained that pace in the years that followed, with 19 singles hitting Billboard s country chart, seven of which made the top 10.
Brothers of the Southland is the band s first studio release in 12 years. That long span between original recordings doesn't mean BlackHawk has been dormant all this time; thousands of satisfied, sweat-stained concert-goers from recent shows would be quick to testify otherwise. But the waiting has indeed been the hardest part before band mainstays Henry Paul and Dave Robbins could return with a new album that would boldly send the country music world a BlackHawk is back message. Their unique musical character has been a catalyst in bringing non-country well. Twenty-one years after their arrival, Blackhawk's legend grows.
