Description
The South is famous for many things, not the least of which is Southern rock music. This usually means heavy blues-driven electric guitars and storytelling vocals about the Southern culture. While the actual origin of Southern rock remains unclear, “many point to my hometown, Jacksonville, Florida as integral in the genre's rise. It is from Jacksonville where many of Southern rock's most prominent groups have originated, most notably Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Lynyrd Skynyrd Band dominated this genre in the late 1970’s but that came to an end after a fatal plane crash which claimed the life lead singer Ronnie Van Zant. To this led The Rossington –Collins Band, formed by the surviving members and fronted by Dale Krantz, one of the few female Southern rock vocalists. Other groups also from Jacksonville, Florida were The Allman Brothers, 38 Special, Molly Hatchet, and Blackfoot. Although Southern rock's popularity peaked in the 70's, the influence of the genre can still be heard today. That is particularly the case in outlaw country music, where artists such as Toby Keith, Travis Tritt, and Kid Rock and have enjoyed considerable success. Bands such as Black Oak Arkansas, Point Blank, The Marshall Tucker, The Allman Brothers Band (formed in Jacksonville, Florida), Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Gainesville, Florida), Ozark Mountain Daredevils, ZZ Top and The Charlie Daniels Band to name a few have also thrived in the genre.

This workbook connects 40 writing exercises with the coaching tools of thought-provoking questions to help the songwriter find a successful outcome.
