The Recording Academy Statement® Re: Joe South

“Two-time GRAMMY® winner Joe South had a successful and illustrious career collaborating with countless artists as a guitarist, songwriter and singer. Once a studio musician, he backed legendary acts including Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin and Simon & Garfunkel. South continued his career as a singer/songwriter penning eloquent lyrics that commented on the state of society and spanned the country, pop and rock genres. He was a true talent and beloved member of the music community, and we mourn his loss along with his family, friends and all of those who had the pleasure of knowing him.”
