So many country artists cite The Allman Brothers Band as an influence that we’re not surprised to see some of Nashville’s biggest names among the stars slated to honor the band’s co-founder Gregg Allman at a tribute show in January.

Eric Church, Trace Adkins, Brantley Gilbert and even Martina McBride are all set to appear. Dubbed “All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman,” the concert saluting the Southern-rock icon is set for Jan. 10, 2014, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Other acts slated to appear include Jackson Browne, Natalie Cole, John Hiatt, Keb’ Mo’ and Pat Monahan of Train.

Gregg is no stranger to country music. At a show this summer at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, he was joined by Keith Urban to perform the Allmans’ staple “One Way Out.”

Tickets are available for purchase starting Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. ET at foxtheatre.org.
