What is it about Southern rock?

If you look over my iTunes library, you'll find a fairly wide selection of classic rock, with a heavier-than-average dose of ZZ Top (the three wise men of rock), and a not inconsequential amount of other Southern rockers like .38 Special, Marshall Tucker Band, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I don't know why, but Southern rock has a distinctive sound to it that gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling. I don't know if it's because it got more airplay in Houston while I was growing up than the rest of the genre (though I doubt it), or just why, but the effect is quite real for me.
