Macon's Music Heritage

Is it the Ocmulgee River or the air in Macon, Georgia that put soul in Otis Redding, excitement in Little Richard, and the Southern funk in the Allman Brothers Band? From the country music of Jason Aldean to the rock n' roll influence of Chuck Leavell, & more, that same soulful feeling continues to inspire music greats today. "Where Soul Lives" isn't just a motto for us, it's our story.

In 2017, Macon will commemorate Little Richard's 85th birthday, the late Gregg Allman's 70th birthday, & the 50th anniversary of Otis Redding's death. To learn more about these Macon music greats, click the links below.
