Atlanta, Georgia southern rock/outlaw country act BLACKBERRY SMOKE released their brand new music video last week for the track, "Shakin' Hands With the Holy Ghost". A special interactive version of the video is also now available, allowing fans to get up close and personal with each member of the band like never before.
The new interactive edit lets fans click buttons while watching the video to switch to footage of any of the individual band members - frontman CHARLIE STARR, guitarist PAUL JACKSON, bassist RICHARD TURNER, keyboardist BRANDON STILL and drummer BRIT TURNER - allowing you to feel like you're right up there onstage with the rockers as they perform.
Check out the interactive video now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJnmyczniZg
The video for "Shakin' Hands With the Holy Ghost" was filmed with director LEWIS CATER of Creative Junkie Media at Dingwalls in London, UK, following the band's stellar performance at the Classic Rock Awards amongst such icons as JIMMY PAGE, BLACK SABBATH and more.
