LOW COUNTRY BLUES

Album Release Date: January 18, 2011

On January 18, 2011, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame legend Gregg Allman released his first solo record in 14 years. Called Low Country Blues for the coastal Georgia region Allman calls home, the record was produced by T Bone Burnett, recorded at his Village Recorder studio in Los Angeles and features Dr. John on piano, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, and Burnett’s brilliant go-to rhythm section: bassist Dennis Crouch and drummer Jay Bellerose. Low Country Blues is Gregg Allman at his very best — a self-assured, spirited collection that will stand as a major milestone in what is undeniably an exceptional career.

BIOGRAPHY

As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band and in his own solo career, Allman has long been a gifted natural interpreter of the blues. His soulful and distinctive voice is one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. Low Country Blues finds him putting his own stamp on songs by some of the blues giants whose work has long informed his own, from Muddy Waters and BB King to Buddy Guy and Magic Sam.
