Skynyrd Melts ‘Swamp Music’ & ‘Curtis Loew’ Into Ultimate Mashup You Never Knew You Needed

Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s second studio album Second Helping contains some of the group’s most recognizable tracks. From “Sweet Home Alabama” to “The Needle and the Spoon,” each song perfectly captured what Skynyrd was all about. 

Two songs on the album that don’t get as much popular attention, but are still undeniably incredible, are “Swamp Music” and “The Ballad of Curtis Loew.” The two appear next to each other on the album, so Skynyrd’s fans have grown used to hearing them together. Because of that, the two songs make for one rockin’ mashup.

Skynyrd combined the two songs during one performance, and the result was spectacular. They opened with the high-energy “Swamp Music,” which was driven by the power of their three skilled guitarists. By opening with “Swamp Music,” they also managed to get the crowd a bit riled up in the process.

But the crowd really went wild when they heard lead singer Johnny Van Zant sing the first few words of “Curtis Loew.” As soon as he did, the crowd burst into a series of satisfied cheers and whistles. While “Swamp Music” showcased Skynyrd’s guitar work, their performance of “Curtis Loew” put Johnny’s vocal talent on full display.

We love hearing our favorite songs performed in new ways. A mashup between “Swamp Music” and “Curtis Loew” is something that never crossed our minds before. But now that we know it exists, we can’t get enough!

Tune in to the clip below to catch the entire mashup in all of its glory.
