Background - The Southern Rock sound began in the deep south around 1969 blending guitar driven 'rock' with elements of blues, boogie, and to a lesser extent (heard in the vocals), country and soul. The Allman Brothers Band are credited with founding the style and were soon followed by artists like Marshall Tucker Band, Wet Willie, Grinderswitch, and Barefoot Jerry. By 1970 a greater 'hard-rock' sound evolved with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws, Blackfoot, and a greater 'pop' sound from Atlanta Rhythm Section, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and the Amazing Rhythm Aces. The golden age of Southern Rock faded by the '80s, but a loyal following, offshoot bands, and a handfull of newer artists keep the style alive.

*NOTE: These are 'Southern Rock songs' by 'Southern Rock artists'. Not the occasional
'Southern Rock' sounding song by otherwise mainstream Rock, Pop, Blues, or Country artists.
