Tesla’s Frank Hannon covers Blackberry Smoke’s Sunrise In Texas

Tesla member Frank Hannon has released a brand new music video. The video is for a cover version of Blackberry Smoke’s song, Sunrise In Texas. The track was released to promote Hannon’s new latest album, From One Place… To Another Vol. 1.

The album features special guest appearances by Paul Jackson (BLACKBERRY SMOKE), Duane Betts (son of Dickey Betts of the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND), Matthewand Gunnar Nelson (sons of Ricky Nelson), Roger Fisher (original HEART guitarist) and many others.

BLACKBERRY SMOKE is one of my favorite bands,” says Frank. “I’ve watched them work hard and develop over many years as they opened for TESLA a few times and my solo band 15 years ago. I have become friends with them and admire their music.

“The lyrics and vibe of ‘Sunrise In Texas’ really inspired me creatively and I felt it fit well on this project ‘From One Place… To Another’ as the words speak of another world outside the world were living in. I can relate to that concept as I think many of us can and we all need an escape from reality sometimes. We all need a new ‘Sunrise’ sometimes.”
