The best of the best when it comes to "Southern Rock" is layered in country and rock.

The rock and roll/country mix has been filling our speakers for years. Some major players in the game take some serious influence from the world of country music. When your song can lay down some serious rhythm, a long and tasty jam session, and a knockout riff, you might just be cranking a "Southern Rock" tune.

  • Mountain - Mississippi Queen, that riff...yummy.
  • The Allman Brothers Band - Ramblin' Man, jam central.
  • ZZ Top - La Grange, "Haw, Haw, Haw, Haw" enough said.
  • Molly Hatchet - Flirtin' With Disaster - Dare I say "heavy metal" guitar solo?
  • The Charlie Daniels Band - Long Haired Country Boy, drug references for the win.
  • Blackfoot - Highway Song, just saw the new and improved Blackfoot a few weeks ago they are awesome live!
  • The Outlaws - Green Grass & High Tides, saw these guys at the Metro Centre so good.
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama, legendary Southern Rock staple.
  • Marshall Tucker Band - Can't You See, the biggest Southern Rock song of all time.
