Zac Brown And Vince Gill Join Gregg Allman For High-Powered “Midnight Rider” Performance

A group of men playing guitars

Three names: Zac Brown, Gregg Allman, Vince Gill.

One stage.

Back in 2014, the three teamed up to sing one of the baddest southern rock songs ever, “Midnight Rider” by the southern rock group, The Allman Brothers.

In the video, we see original Allman Brothers member Gregg Allman (in case you couldn’t put that together), singing his ass off like it was 1975 again, accompanied by the incredible sound of Zac Brown and his band, and the man with perhaps the best vocal/guitar 1-2 punch in all of country music, Mr. Vince Gill.

And shoutout to Gregg Allman too, the man was battling severe health issues with hepatitis-C and liver cancer, which ultimately led to his death in 2017. Still, Gregg Allman continued to play music out of pure passion.

Allman said it best in his autobiography, My Cross To Bear:

“Music is my life’s blood. I love music, I love to play good music, and I love to play music for people who appreciate it.

And when it’s all said and done, I’ll go to my grave and my brother will greet me, saying, ‘Nice work, little brother- you did all right.’ I must have said this a million times, but if I died today, I have had me a blast.”

Dubbed, All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman, the concert at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, featured guest performances from Eric Church, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride and more, in addition to this gem from Zac and Vince.
