A longtime friend of Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels has honored the group on more than one occasion. He went so far as to dedicate his 1979 album Million Mile Reflections to Ronnie Van Zant. 

While Million Mile Reflections contains Charlie's signature song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," it also features a much more emotional tune. Called "Reflections," the song honors lost legends such as Elvis Presley and Janis Joplin.

The final portion of the song reflects on the saddening day that Skynyrd's plane crashed. Charlie pours out his heart as he sings about Ronnie, sharing how blessed he felt to know him:

"It was October in St. Louis town, when we heard that the 'Free Bird' had fell to the ground. And we all said a prayer before we went down to play. And Ronnie, my buddy, above all the rest. I miss you the most, and I loved you the best. And now that you're gone I thank God I was blessed, just to know you."
