About Lynyrd Skynyrd:
The legacy began some 41 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and halted for a decade by the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Allen Collins, Billy Powell, Leon Wilkeson and Hughie Thomasson, yet Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks on with original member Gary Rossington joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase.
The rock and roll powerhouse continually tours. And so Skynyrd stands, “still unbroken.” “People may say, ‘they need the money,’ well I don’t think any of us need the money,” Van Zant says. “It’s just that we love the music, it’s bigger than the money, it’s not even about that any more. We have to make a living, sure, but it’s about the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there playing a great show with Skynyrd and seeing people love this music.”
Adds Rossington, “We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. We wanted to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.”
With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.
About Hank Williams Jr.
Hank Williams, Jr. is an artist that has little to prove. He’s the most outspoken, controversial, flat-out rowdy musician in country music… with instantly recognizable vocals and an always-present charisma. Already possessing the most powerful pedigree in country music, Hank was on tour at 8 years old, debuted on the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 11, and at 14 made his first record, a rendition of his father’s “Long Gone Lonesome Blues.” In 1970, he signed the biggest recording contract in the history of MGM Records, and when he began to follow his own music path, Hank’s instincts led to him to phenomenal success. “Family Tradition,” released in 1979, went Gold, kicking off a long string of gold and platinum efforts.
Hank remains one of the most consistent ticket sellers in music, as generation after generation gets turned on to one of the most dynamic live performers ever to take the stage. His music pays homage to the country legends who gave him a personal musical education. Williams’ trademark blend of traditional country, blues and Southern rock is seriously good. His life has been a series of breathtaking highs and unbelievable lows. He continues making music his way, constructing his own trailblazing musical legacy. “I’m not searching for myself or looking for my sound, ya’ll,” he says. “I found that a long time ago.”
