February 11, 2012 was an important day in Allman Brothers Band history as NARAS awarded the Brothers with Lifetime Achievement Grammy at the Special Merits Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, CA.
In attendance to receive the award, were 10 of 11 of the awardees, including founding members Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks, & Jaimoe as well as family members for Duane Allman & Berry Oakley. They were joined in receiving this award by long time Allman Brothers Band members Warren Haynes, Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge & Derek Trucks as well as influential former member Chuck Leavell. Regrettably, founding member Dickey Betts chose to not attend. A link to the acceptance speeches from the Grammy site is below as well as some pictures from the festivities.
