Van Zant brothers Release Red White & Blue

Van Zant Brothers

The Van Zant brothers recently unearthed a show recorded on January 28, 2006 at Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Georgia and is the only concert recording in existence from the only tour by brothers Johnny (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Donnie (38 Special).

 “We are really excited for this album to come out right before the Fourth of July, to celebrate the independence of our country,” says the Van Zant brothers. “We hope everyone rocks out to RED WHITE and BLUE all day!” 

Red White & Blue (Live) is available for purchase through Amazon and iTunes while the webstore is offering an exclusive bundle with CD.  Late patriarch Lacy Van Zant, father of brothers Ronnie, Donnie and Johnny, compiled family photographs and memories and put together The Van Zant Family Southern Music Scrap Book. Lacy said, “I have written this book for you, the fans.” The book chronicles the family history, with 200 photographs of family members and memories. Each book is personally autographed by Johnny and Donnie Van Zant.  Purchase it HERE.

The brothers joined together over twenty years ago to form Van Zant and have delved deep into the family’s country-tinged roots. The two were inspired by the fact that their late brother, Ronnie, the spiritual leader and original lead vocalist and chief songwriter for Lynyrd Skynyrd, had always wanted to do a country record. “Let’s do it for Ronnie,” avowed the brothers. The Van Zant’s significant contribution to southern rock, country and popular music across the board has created an unparalleled legacy and is the reason they have been dubbed The First Family of Southern Rock. “It has been quite a while since Donnie and I have worked together on a project,” says Johnny Van Zant. “We can’t wait to see what the fans think. We love it, so we hope they do too.”
