“These Days” the legacy of Gregg Allman is carried on by his son Devon Allman. The Allman Betts Band leader recently honored his father alongside Maggie Rose with a take on Gregg’s borrowed Jackson Browne tune “These Days”. Originally written by The Pretender, the track appears on Allman’s 1973 solo debut, Laid Back.

With “These Days” already a cover, the pressure isn’t so heavy on the heir to the Allman Brothers Band legacy. Instead, he and the rising Nashville singer-songwriter give new voices to the song about love, death, and regret.

“It’s a phenomenal song and Gregg did such a great job reimagining it,” Rose told American Songwriter. “When I suggested it to Devon, he thought it might be easier for him to cover because his dad didn’t write it. It was less daunting. We were paying tribute to his love for the song while doing something fun and creative together.”

The duo also stays true to Gregg’s alteration of Browne’s lyrics, with Gregg changing “Don’t confront me with my failures / I had not forgotten them,” to “Please don’t confront me with my failures / I’m aware of them.” Browne wrote “These Days” when he was 16, with Nico making the first recording in 1967 for her album Chelsea Girl. The song would later appear on Allman’s Laid Back as well as Browne’s 1973 sophomore album, For Everyman. The two versions were released within days of each other in October ’73.

“When [Allman] did it I thought that he really unlocked a power in that song that I sort of then emulated in my version,” Browne told KSGR in Austin in 2008. “I started playing the piano. I wasn’t trying to sing it like Gregg; I couldn’t possibly.”
