Ronnie Van Zant was a lot of things.

A poet for the common man, fiercely determined in his pursuit of excellence, and one of the greatest frontmen to ever grace a stage – but at the end of the day, and most importantly, Ronnie was a family man, spending every moment not on the road or in the studio with the people he loved most at his home in Jacksonville.

His younger brother, current Lynyrd Skynyrd frontman Johnny Van Zant, looks back on Ronnie the family man and reveals that some of Ronnie’s most treasured moments came not from being onstage, but from kicking around his Jacksonville home with his family and spending as much time with the people he loved most in the world as humanly possible.
