Like an Arrow

Album: Like an Arrow (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Blackberry Smoke's fifth album. HMV.com asked the band's Charlie Starr why they named the record after this song. He replied:

    "As we were listening to the final mixes, I really thought 'this is a straight-ahead Blackberry Smoke album,' so it made sense to give it that particular title. The song, on the other hand speaks of life and how we choose to live it."
