As one of Lynyrd Skynyrd's most popular songs, "Sweet Home Alabama" is also one of the most frequently covered by other artists. From fellow rockers to country stars, many have tried their hand at Skynyrd's signature song.

One artist who did just that was rising country star Frankie Ballard. While he's been performing since 2007, Frankie didn't release his first single until 2010. Three years later he saw one of his singles chart for the first time, and it also became his first number one hit. 

Now, Frankie has three number ones to his name, and he's quickly generated a loyal following. But long before he was tearing up the charts, Frankie tore up the stage playing a cover of "Sweet Home Alabama."

During a 2012 performance in Alabama, Frankie thought it was appropriate to play Skynyrd's song named after the state. His gritty, vintage-sounding voice was the perfect fit for the Southern rock classic, but it was his guitar playing that blew everyone away.

For being a country artist, Frankie proved he knows how to play guitar like a rock star. Moving around as he played, Frankie poured passion into each note he strummed, which gave his guitar parts an electrifying quality.

Frankie left his heart out on the stage the day he covered "Sweet Home Alabama." When you watch him in the video below, you'll understand why he's quickly becoming one of the biggest names in country music today. 

Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd & Second Helping Live' is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats - it's the perfect gift for the Lynyrd Skynyrd fan in your life. Buy it here on Amazon!
