It's been more than three decades since Allman first made his greatest contribution to rock music as lead singer, organist and songwriter in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Allman Brothers Band, which he helped create in 1969. Known for their bluesy, improvisational style, the group hit it big in the 1970s, headlining sold-out concerts across the country. Just as their album Brothers and Sisters (1973) was climbing the charts, Allman emerged as a solo artist.
Allman's debut album Laid Back (1973) was a hit and was received well by critics. With a more soulful sound, Allman reworked a number of Allman Brothers songs, such as "Midnight Rider," which topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at #19. His success continued with Playin' Up a Storm (1977) and the single "I'm No Angel" from the 1987 gold certified album of the same name. Just Before the Bullets Fly (1988) and Searching for Simplicity (1997) later followed.
In 2011, fourteen years since Searching for Simplicity, Allman released Low Country Blues. A year later, he and his band mates of the Allman Brothers Band were honored with the special Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award.
