I've always had a liking for that southern rock sound. Gram Parsons arguably started it. The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd perfected it.
There's bands from the south that one doesn't normally put into the southern rock category; like Little Feat (my favorite) or Dr. John.
There's the second generation groups like; Blackfoot (another favorite), 38 Special, and Black Oak Arkansas.
There are bands still carrying it on today like; Drive By Truckers and Jason Isbell (once removed).
With all that being said, who's your favorite southern rock band past or present?
