Last night my husband and I were watching the CMT Music Awards, and I ended up going to bed a little early. It was a long weekend, and I was just done. While I was getting ready to fall asleep, my husband had to run upstairs and tell me that I missed a badass performance (Of course I did) featuring lots of legends doing a tribute to one of my favorite Classic Rock bands Lynyrd Skynyrd. I had thought I missed it, but apparantly not! So I had to look up the performance, and damn.
I mean, Slash, Billy Gibbons, Paul Rodgers, Cody Johnson, Warren Hayes, Chuck Levall, Wynona Judd and LeeAnn Rimes?
Having seen Skynyrd several times, and always enjoying the show they put on, this made my heart happy.
Also, Slash. And Cody Johnson. That’s all you really need right there.
Sadly, after the recent passing of Gary Rossington, there are no original surviving members of the band. But their legend will live on.
There will always be someone yelling “Play Freebird” until the end of time, so there’s that.
Seriously, though, loved this! Good call, CMT.
Rock and Country is ALWAYS a good mix!
