Skynyrd Brings Down The House With Gripping Live Performance Of ‘Sweet Home Alabama’

LakeParadiseMusic1 YouTube Channel

“Sweet Home Alabama” is one of those songs that needs no introduction. As an official anthem of the South and a song that’s found its way into movie soundtracks, it is so much greater than the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd ever dreamed it would be.

All these years later, and you can still hear people young and old singing those famous words, “Big wheels keep on turning…” Even those who have no idea who Skynyrd is (which aren’t many), know “Sweet Home Alabama” by heart. 

During their live shows, “Sweet Home Alabama” is still one of the major highlights for fans. Since the song always manages to fire up the crowd, Skynyrd decided to film an official live video for it at one of their shows.

The performance was driven by the crowd’s excitement, which only continued to grow as the song went on. We could point out individual elements of this performance that made it so great, but we’d end up naming every moment that occurred!

Seriously, what isn’t there to love about this performance? You’ve got the stellar triple guitar work, Billy Powell‘s magic hands gliding over the keys, and Michael Cartellone rockin’ it out on the drums. Lead singer Johnny Van Zant‘s performance was also on point, and it looked like he was having the time of his life up there on stage.

We’re sure everyone in the crowd was having the times of their lives watching Skynyrd put on such a great performance. Now it’s your turn to check it out in the clip below.

This is why after all this time, Skynyrd still reigns supreme in the world of Southern rock. 

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!
