Summary

Pure Prairie League, sometimes abbreviated PPL, is an American country rock band whose roots began between 1965 and 1969 in Waverly, Ohio, with Craig Fuller, Terry Shea, Tommy McGrail, Jim Caughlan, and John Call. In 1970 McGrail named the band after a fictional 19th century temperance union featured in the 1939 Errol Flynn cowboy movie Dodge City. The band has had a long run, active from the 1970s through the late 1980s and was revived in the late 1990s for a time, then again in 2004. As of 2014, they are still doing at least 100 shows a year.
