New Music Spotlight – “White Trash Millionaire” by Black Stone Cherry

When you think of “white trash,” you usually don’t think of millionaires, but Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry has blended the two worlds brilliantly with their new song “White Trash Millionaire.”  The song is the first single from their upcoming album “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” which will be released at the end of May.

The raw, dirty guitar sound is the perfect backdrop for the message being delivered in “White Trash Millionaire,” a song that seems destined to become a modern-day rock anthem.

Money has a tendency to change people, especially those who seek out material possessions for status as much as for need or desire.  But it doesn’t change everyone, and it doesn’t buy happiness.  Since the economy crashed, many people have learned to live with less while focusing on the things in life that really matter to them.  Some may call it simple.  Others may call it practical.  Either way, “White Trash Millionaire” shows that wealth is in the eye of the beholder.

It has been nearly three years since Black Stone Cherry released their sophomore album “Folklore and Superstition,” which featured their hit song “Blind Man,” so BSC fans are undoubtedly anxious for the new album to hit the streets.

Black Stone Cherry will be hitting the road in April as the supporting act for Hinder, and will also be doing shows with Alter Bridge.  They are one of the many bands slated to play Carolina Rebellion on May 7, 2011 in North Carolina.

After just one listen to “White Trash Millionaire,” the song was already stuck in my head.  Check out the video below, and you’ll see why.
