**Skynyrd headline dates not with Kid Rock

 

2009 marks a key point in Lynyrd Skynyrd’s storied career. The band has enjoyed continued success and visibility in the past few years including a recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction. Their American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” has passed the 2 million mark in downloaded ringtones.  Their last single, “Red White & Blue” reached #1 on the Rock Charts.  Last summer, the band co-headlined one of the most successful tours of the year on their inaugural run with Kid Rock.  High profile appearances, including the show closer at last year’s VH1 Fashion Rocks helped to expose the band to a younger audience.  With a catalog of over 60 albums and sales beyond 30 million, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a major cultural icon that appeals to all generations.
