The definition of Southern Rock is a definitely loose one, without many objective criteria. It is more a term that has been put on bands like The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band and some others because they play music that mixes elements from rock, country, blues, and most important – they are from the southern states of the USA. Royal Southern Brotherhood is a band that might be classified as a southern rock band, and yesterday they played at John Dee in Oslo for Oslo Blues Club.
Brad Paisley is one of the most celebrated newer country artists. He is also more rocky than many of his colleagues on the country scene. Last night he played Oslo Spektrum for an enthusiastic audience of between 6 and 7000.
