Southern rock is a sub-genre of rock music with a mix of Americana. It developed in the Southern United States from elements of rock and roll, country music, blues, and gospel, and is focused generally on electric guitar and vocals. Although it is unknown from where the term "Southern rock" came, many people feel that these important contributors to the development of rock and roll have been minimized in rock’s history. Southern rock reached its commercial peak in the 1970s, and many of its artists remain staples of "classic rock" radio to this day. Many people, including Gregg Allman, say that technically all rock is southern rock because rock 'n' roll was invented in the South.
