Gregg Allman’s Final Album to be Commemorated with Special Events in Los Angeles, Nashville and Macon

Gregg Allman’s final studio album Southern Blood will arrive on September 8 and to mark the occasion, a number of special events will be held in Los Angeles, Nashville and Allman’s hometown of Macon, GA.

On September 17 at the Grammy Museum’s Clive Davis Theater in Los Angeles, Allman will be celebrated by the likes of Devon Allman, longtime manager Michael Lehman, musical director Scott Sharrard and Southern Blood producer Don Was. Together, the ensemble will share stories, memories and music with moderator and Grammy Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman as they remember the life and legacy of the famed musician.

In Macon, Mayor Robert Reichert will issue a proclamation declaring December 8 (Allman’s birthday) to be “Gregg Allman Day” and on September 9, he will be posthumously honored with the key to the city. A celebration will be held at The Big House with Chank Middleton, Allman’s longtime friend, joining the cast mentioned above (Was will not appear in Macon).

For the Nashville finale as a part of Americanafest on September 15, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater will host Devon Allman and Lehman sharing the stage with Buddy Miller, Joan Osborne, Pony Bradshaw and John Paul White for a night of collaborative performances and shared memories.
