David Grissom has since toured with The Allman Brothers Band and the Dixie Chicks. On May 19, 2007, at a free concert titled "The Road To Austin", Bobby Whitlock performed his electric version of Layla and Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad with dueling guitars courtesy of David Grissom and Eric Johnson.
Grissom released his first solo album Loud Music in 2007. He has also recorded sessions, played and toured with a number of other American recording artists, including Buddy Guy, Chris Isaak, Sarah Hickman and Bob Dylan. David Grissom recently recorded with Owen Temple on his latest album Two Thousand Miles, produced by Lloyd Maines. In January 2009 he released his second CD 10,000 Feet. He has also written an educational "Guide To Blues/Rock Guitar Soloing" with an extra CD containing examples of his style, published by Cherry Lane Music.
Grissom has played PRS (Paul Reed Smith) guitars for most of his professional career. He played a modified PRS McCarty Trem for over a decade. Then, in 2007, his collaboration with Paul Reed Smith resulted in the DGT (David Grissom Trem) signature model from PRS, a guitar that has met with widespread popularity within the PRS community. Its innovations (for a PRS guitar) include special pickups chosen by Grissom, Dunlop 6100 fretwire, a nitrocellulose finish, and two volume knobs to allow the blending of both humbucking pickups. Grissom has noted that this feature was inspired by the sounds Jimmy Page created on the early Led Zeppelin albums.
