Blackhawk is the first studio album by the American country music group Blackhawk. Released in 1994 on Arista Nashville, it was certified 2× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA for shipping two million copies. The album produced the singles "Goodbye Says It All", "Every Once in a While", "I Sure Can Smell the Rain", "Down in Flames", and "That's Just About Right". Respectively, these reached #11, #2, #9, #10, and #7 on the Hot Country Songs charts between 1994 and 1995.

Contents[edit]

Five singles were released from the album, four of which were top ten hits on the billboard charts. The lead-off single "Goodbye Says It All" reached number 11.

"Goodbye Says It All", "Down in Flames", "Every Once in a While", "I Sure Can Smell the Rain" and "That's Just About Right" all had accompanying music videos. "Love Like This" was later recorded by Carlene Carter and released as the first single from her 1995 album Little Acts of Treason.

Reception[edit]

CMT would later reflect that the album "unleash[ed] an electrifying three-part harmony with its luring grunge edge." The network also lauded the songwriting skills displayed and the "scorching rock-belted instrumentation." [1]
