Gregg Allman’s Book Launches in Nashville

Founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman, will return to Nashville May 10 to promote the release of his memoir, My Cross to Bear (William Morrow/HarperCollins Publishers), which hits shelves May 1.

BMI Nashville will co-host the meet-and-greet and book signing with Nashville’s independent Parnassus Books. The event will be held in the BMI’s front lobby and is open to the public from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.

In My Cross To Bear, Allman discusses in his own words the death of his older brother Duane, his solo career, his string of failed marriages (including Cher), and his struggles with drugs and alcohol. Allman additionally takes readers through the formation of the band that influenced the sound of rock and roll.

As the Allman Brothers Band celebrated the 40th anniversary of live album Eat a Peach this year, it was also honored at the Grammys with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Allman himself was also nominated for Best Blues Album for his solo record, Low Country Blues.
