Brantley Gilbert & Lynyrd Skynyrd Perform Gritty Renditions Of Skynyrd’s Biggest Hits


Brantley Gilbert and Lynyrd Skynyrd are both superstars on their own merit, but when they team up? Yes please! 

CMT Crossroads, known for pairing country music singers with musicians from other genres, joined Brantley and rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd in an amazing night filled with even better music. Some other artists who have teamed up for CMT Crossroads are Jason Aldean with Bob Seger, Rascal Flatts with Journey, Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks, and Carrie Underwood with Steven Tyler, just to name a few!

This combination of country and rock had the crowd on their feet, singing along! They performed Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man,” “What’s Your Name,” “Still Unbroken,” and “Sweet Home Alabama.” Of Brantley’s hits, they performed “Country Must Be Country Wide,” “One Hell Of An Amen,” “Kick It In The Sticks,” and “Bottoms Up.”

Their entire performance is filled with energy as they try to get the crowd involved as much as possible. Gilbert, the bad boy of country music, has had success as a performer and a song writer.  He wrote Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party” and “Dirt Road Anthem”, and has three No. 1 hits himself.

Take a listen to the audio of  their performances of “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Simple Man” below.
