At a concert in Atlanta, Gregg Allman was given a tribute from a line of artists, commemorating both the band the Allman Brothers and the southern rock that would be a huge influence following their heyday during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The rock legend was on stage performing with artists including Jackson Browne, blues musican Taj Mahal, and Vince Gill. He was said to be very humbled from the appreciation from his colleagues, especially when it follows a liver transplant in recent years. Among the well-known songs performed in the show included “Midnight Rider” and “Melissa”, and other guest performers included country stars Martina McBride and Eric Church.
