The Country Music Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd," available July 20th exclusively at Wal Mart. Produced by Grammy-winner Jay Joyce, this 8-track album brings together various country outlaws singing Skynyrd classics.
While the band had no part in making the album, they are humbled by the thought of young artists singing their material. Johnny Van Zant, Skynyrd's frontman, told Billboard.com, "It's all these young country bucks doing Skynyrd songs, which is pretty cool to us. It gives me great pleasure, because they're doing older stuff... my brother (Ronnie Van Zant) wrote while he was still alive. People still love that stuff. They did what he did. He was a poet for the common people, and it's always great when other people are interested enough to re-do the songs."
