  • Here, Blackberry Smoke's Charlie Starr remains optimistic that his luck will change.

    We all want we ain't got
    Some of us have and some have not
    Everything I got coming to me
    Life, love, money in the land of the free
    All my life I've been turned out
    One of these days
    I'll get the best seat in the house

    Starr explained: "That song is sort of a sarcastic complaint. We all want what we ain't got. It's not enough to get in, people want front row."
