Kid Rock may have been born in Michigan, but he is one huge fan of Southern rock. So much of a fan in fact, that he has styled some of his songs with a Southern rock sound.
Rock made the ultimate show of support for Southern rock when he released his smash hit “All Summer Long” in 2008. The tune samples two iconic rock songs, the first being Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London” and the second being Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s “Sweet Home Alabama.”
But Rock’s connection to Skynyrd is much deeper than that. He actually toured with Skynyrd before, and was the one who inducted them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
As a result of their friendship, the two artists have collaborated more times than we could even begin to count. Their typical song of choice? None other than “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Rock and Skynyrd once joined forces during a live appearance on Good Morning America. Skynyrd’s lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant stood center stage with Rock by his side, and they traded lines throughout the verses.
The two sang together every time they came around to the chorus, which the crowd was also singing at the top of their lungs. It’s clear that everyone involved was having a blast that day!
