38 Special (also known as .38 Special or Thirty-Eight Special) is a hard/Southern rock band from Jacksonville, Florida that saw its rise during the late-1970s as a Southern rock band, only to shift its music into the more popular realm of arena rock at the beginning of the 1980s. The band would reach the limelight in 1981 with the release of its hit single "Hold On Loosely," which was followed up by the two Billboard #1 hits, "Caught Up In You" and "If I'd Been the One" in 1982 and 1983, respectively. Despite seeing a lull in the band's career during the 1990s, 38 Special would come back in full force in 2007 and is showing no signs of letting up.
