"Soulshine" is a song recorded by The Allman Brothers Band and released on their 1994 album Where It All Begins. It was written by guitarist Warren Haynes with vocals by Gregg Allman. The song's title originates from Haynes' nickname, given by his father. Although it was never released as a single, it still remains one of the Allmans' best known songs among fans and concert-goers.
A live version of the song, which appeared on the Allmans' 2003 DVD Live At The Beacon Theatre, had Allman and Haynes alternating vocals on the verses and harmonizing on the chorus. This has been the standard for the song in most recent years with the dual vocals.
In 2007, vocalist Beth Hart released the album 37 Days, which included a cover of this song.
"Soulshine" was originally recorded and released by bluesman Larry McCray on the 1993 album "Delta Hurricane," with permission from Warren Haynes.
