«southern rock» - best artists

Southern rock is a subgenre of rock music. It developed in the Southern United States from rock and roll, country music, and blues, and is focused generally on electric guitar and vocals. The sounds coming from obscure but now legendary recording studios such as Fame in Muscle Shoals, Alabama drip with southern charm wrapped within a hard, slightly twangy electric guitar. While Fame is known for classic recordings from Rod Stewart, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers, recent hit songs such as “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood and “I Loved Her First” by Heartland continue the city’s musical legacy.
