Lynyrd Skynyrd Jam Out With Acoustic “Sweet Home Alabama”- Can’t Help But To Sing Along!
Unplugged and on On Tap!
In 2014, Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd surprised us with a special appearance on VH1’s On Tap filling in for host Nik Carter, and treated us to a killer acoustic rendition of ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ that reminded us why it’s still our favorite song – no matter how its played, it always rocks! The way Lynyrd Skynyrd navigates a song like ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and takes it from our favorite feel good anthem for all things Southern rock to a soulful acoustic piece is nothing short of impressive.
Fun Fact: Former Lynyrd Skynyrd bass player Ed King says that the infamous solo in ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ came to him in a dream, note for note.
As much as we all love the original that’s kept us dancing in the aisles for over 4 decades, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s acoustic rendition has a special place in our hearts, too. For a song like this, it’s the spirit that you have to capture – everything wild and free about Ronnie Van Zant is within ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, and this is definitely a performance that would have had him grinning from ear to ear!
