GET's Dain Schult Announces Another INFLUENTIA Contribution to GET/AIR – BIG DOG RADIO
GET CEO, Dain Schult, stated, "BIG DOG RADIO is a melding of Southern Rock and Country – a subgenre of rock music and an actual genre of Americana. With its focus generally on electric guitar and vocals, it represents an important contribution to the development of rock and roll but had tended to be overlooked in rock's overall history.
"Late Sixties music influencers including "Country Rock" artists like the Byrds, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emmylou Harris, the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Poco, Pure Prairie League, the Band, Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffett and Creedence Clearwater Revival, also played a part in the development of Southern rock and were under the influence of Southern blues, boogie and country music.
"Rock and roll is like a sponge – soaking up musical elements around it and it easily combined rhythm and blues with country music, particularly evident as a fusion pickup in the Fifties - rockabilly. There has been cross-pollination throughout music history where the term 'country-rock' is generally used to refer to the wave of rock musicians of the late 1960s and early 1970s who began to record rock records using country themes, vocal styles and additional instrumentation.
"This carried on into the Allman Brothers Band who put Macon, Georgia, and Capricorn Records on the map with their national debut in 1969 and gained a loyal following akin to the Dead Heads with the Grateful Dead. The Allman's blues/rock sound incorporated long free-form jams rolling in jazz, country, blues and folk. The late, great Gregg Allman used to say that 'Southern rock' was a redundant term, like 'rock rock.' South Carolina's Marshall Tucker Band was often the opening act for the Allman Brothers concerts and using touches of jazz, soul, Appalachian folk and psychedelia in their music.
"Then everything starts sprouting in all directions – Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Wet Willie, Outlaws, 38 Special, Eric Quincy Tate, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, Black Oak Arkansas, Elvin Bishop, Great Southern, Dixie Dregs, Sea Level, Blackfoot, ZZ Top, Molly Hatchet, Georgia Satellites, Drivin' N Cryin', Confederate Railroad, Dash Rip Rock, Kentucky Headhunters, Blackberry Smoke, Dixie Witch, Gator Country, Widespread Panic, the Black Crowes, Gov't Mule, Southern Rock All-Stars and the Derek Trucks Band, but there are so many more artists left to mention.
"That's why we decided we needed a third Country format to more thoroughly cover all the bases. CLASSIC COUNTRY will cover the true traditional Country element with COUNTRY SIDE OF LIFE serving the base of contemporary County programming primarily, leaving the Southern Country Rock segment to BIG DOG COUNTRY and that will cover a lot of artists – a lot of musical territory.
"The format will be used internally with both O & O Terrestrial and Internet station involvement as well as being offered through The Miracle Wonderland Radio Company – our syndication wing for use by other stations. Above and beyond this format and, as a native of Georgia, with how well the Georgia Bulldogs are playing this year, I must add 'How 'Bout Dem Dawgs!'"
