Atlanta Rhythm Section, sometimes abbreviated ARS,
is an American southern rock band. The band unofficially
formed in 1970 as former members of the Candymen and the
Classics IV became the session band for the newly opened
Studio One in Doraville, Georgia, near Atlanta.
After playing on other artists' recordings, they decided to become a true band in their own right. The members of the original Atlanta Rhythm Section were Rodney Justo (vocals), Barry Bailey (guitarist), Paul Goddard (bassist), Dean Daughtry (keyboardist) and Robert Nix (drummer). Buddy Buie, the band's manager and producer, is listed first on almost all of the songwriting credits of the Atlanta Rhythm Section's songs.
