Dickey Betts and Great Southern
Dickey Betts is best known for his guitar strumming skills, and he might have the Allman Brothers Band to thank
for honing his craft. Betts was a founding member of the country rock band the Allman Brothers, jamming on the guitar alongside
Duane Allman in the band's early years to make up one of the most incredible guitar duos of all time. Dickey Betts went on
to become a bona fide solo star after the downturn of the Allman Brothers' success, and he has since claimed all kinds of
huge awards in the rock music industry. Betts took home a Grammy Award in 1996 for his instrumental hit "Jessica," and was
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. He has also been named on Rolling Stone's 100 Great Guitarists of All
Time list on multiple occasions, solidifying his name and talent in the industry.

ranging from the guitar and ukulele to the mandolin and banjo in his youth. Betts and Duane Allman first began making music
together in 1969, and they helped to form the Allman Brothers, which quickly became a Southern rock sensation. After Duane
Allman's death in 1971, Betts became the Allman Brothers' sole guitarist, and eventually he began making his own solo music
as well. Betts began touring with Great Southern after the Allman Brothers disbanded in the early '80s, and despite an announcement
