The Allman Betts Band has wrapped recording their new record at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. The record, produced by Grammy-winning Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine, and Elvis Presley), is expected to be released in the Spring, 2019.
The new ABB will include Devon Allman, Duane Betts, Berry Oakley Jr. (son of original Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley), slide guitar virtuoso Johnny Stachela, keyboardist John Ginty (Robert Randolph’s Family Band, Dixie Chicks) and DAP percussionists R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow) and John Lum.
Peter Levin (Gregg Allman’s Hammond B3 player) and Chuck Leavell (former Allman Brothers Band keyboardist and current Rolling Stones keyboardist) will also appear on the record.
Before the official launch of The Allman Betts Band in 2019, you can find Devon and Duane on tour through late February 2019 as “The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts”.
