Southern Rock Gold is a two-disc greatest hits compilation album released in 2005. It features thirty-two of the greatest hits from Southern rock, many of which are from the Universal Music Group catalogue. The liner notes on the CD consist of a 9 page article written in September 2005 by Scott Schinder about Southern rock with emphasis on a behind the scenes look at the songs and groups featured in the compilation. The article itself is followed by a list of the songs, including each song's author, recording date and the album it was originally released on.

The cover features, clockwise from the top left: Outlaws, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Wet Willie, Elvin Bishop, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Charlie Daniels, and The Allman Brothers Band.
