The second "Gritz Stone Ground & Southern" compilation is now available! The FREE album download features another mixture of legendary Southern rockers along with the very best of the new breed of artists.
Dixie Tabernacle is an all-star project that features Wet Willie lead singer Jimmy Hall, along with Doug Phelps of The Kentucky Headhunters fame and former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle. The project was produced in Nashville by Larry Goad.
Bekka Bramlett, the daughter of Delaney & Bonnie, packs a powerful punch on the title track from her brand new album.
Swampdawamp is the fastest rising Southern Rock band in ages, just off the Lynyrd Skynyrd Simple Man Cruise where, according to many, they stole the show.
Caroline Aiken does it all. She’s an amazing singer-songwriter who can also rock the blues to beat the band, as she does here, backed by Atlanta’s Doghouse.
Russell Gulley first rose to fame as a member of the late seventies band Jackson Highway, and over the past several years he has written and recorded some absolutely stellar blues tunes.
Christine Ohlman might not be from the South, but the girl is Southern to the core, with a voice that falls somewhere between Memphis soul and Muscle Shoals. By the way, she has been lead vocalist with the Saturday Night Live band for many years.
Arkansas native Joe Pitts is a guitar monster, an excellent blues player who sounds at times like Duane Allman and at others like Walter Trout. His singing is very pleasing as well.
Florida’s Rebel Pride are just a fine band, possessing a lead singer reminiscent of Danny Joe Brown and rocking original songs.
The Rhythm Pigs have a rotating lineup that at times features Dave Hlubek from Molly Hatchet and at others former Blackfoot player Jay Johnson. The Virginia based band are true road warriors, turning in a live track that was just recorded last week.
Trey Harris was raised in South Carolina where he grew up listening to local heroes The Marshall Tucker Band and great classic country artists. His song is a tribute to all the Southern Rockers who have passed on.
The Southern Rock Society are genuine Southern Rockers who play Southern Rock music, as well as promote other bands and Southern Rock events. “Don’t Quit Love” is a fine example of the SRS’s music.
