Sam Moore To Perform With Garth Brooks On ‘Grammy Salute To Music Legends®’ To Air Oct. 18 on PBS As Part Of “Great Performances” Series

Sam Moore and Dave Prater – the groundbreaking duo, Sam & Dave, who
brought their gospel roots to Soul music, were one of the primary chart
stars at the Stax and Atlantic labels in the ’60s. Bringing the passion
of call and response to their wailing soul side, the duo were honored

The GRAMMY-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, dubbed “Double
Dynamite,” found success with songs like 1966’s “Hold On, I’m Comin'”

1967’s “Soul Man” (No. 1 on the R&B chart and No. 2 on the pop
chart). In 1967, “Soul Man” garnered the duo a GRAMMY Award for Best
Performance: Rhythm & Blues Group, and in 1999 the song was inducted
into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame.
