“Lynyrd Skynyrd – One More For The Fans!,” will be a CD/DVD collection celebrating the band’s incredible musical legacy. On a special night last November 12, 2014, an extraordinary collection of artists came together at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA to honor Lynyrd Skynyrd, one of the most influential bands of our time. The unique concert featured performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd, along with special guests Trace Adkins, Alabama, Gregg Allman, Blackberry Smoke, Cheap Trick, Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, Gov’t Mule,Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Randy Houser, Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson, Aaron Lewis, moe., O.A.R., Robert Randolph and Donnie Van Zant. Keith Wortman, creator and executive producer of the concert event, broadcast special and music release worked with Ken Levitan and Ross Schilling who also served as executive producers of the show. Don Was led the all-star house band as musical director for the evening. As part of the campaign to save the Fox Theatre from demolition, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded their 1976 live album, One More From The Road, at the landmark theatre. The title “Lynyrd Skynyrd – One More For The Fans!,” was inspired by that legendary album’s title.
