Ronnie Van Zant Explaining Meaning Behind “Free Bird” Will Have You In A Daze | Society Of Rock Videos

Our Free Bird

“To me there’s nothin’ free-er than a bird. You know? Just flyin’ wherever it wants to go. And uh, I duno, that’s what this country’s all about you know, you know, being’ free. I think everybody wants to be a free bird.”- Ronnie Van Zant

As he enjoys the peaceful nature of the lake and casting his line, Ronnie discusses the origin and meaning behind his forever iconic song “Free Bird.”

We thought that we missed Ronnie before, but seeing him in such a raw and personal video like this really puts the fragility and beauty of life in perspective for us. We all know and love Ronnie as the voice of Lynyrd Skynyrd, but this interview really delves into who Ronnie was a person and what he was sonically and spiritually moved by.

You will always be our forever free bird Ronnie.
