Johnny Van Zant, lead singer of the classic Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, just contributed the ultimate gift to the DeSantis administration in Flordia. And we can assure you — it rocks!
Johnny Van Zant, it must be remembered, took over lead vocals for the band after his brother Ronnie’s untimely death in a 1977 plane crash. The band came back to record their first studio album in 1991. And the band has been active ever since. If you love their music, there is a good chance you will love what we are about to say.
Governor Ron DeSantis is a champion of liberty and the Americana vision captured by Lynyrd Skynyrd in classic songs like “Freed Bird” and “Sweet Home Alabama.”
He does not despise freedom; he defends it. He supports freedom for excellence by protecting our children from the genuine threat of groomers. He supports freedom from coercion in his very prudential and principled opposition to mandates of all forms.
We endorse what Flordia is doing, and we can truly say — Ron DeSantis is America’s Governor — in the ultimate sense of the word.
America’s Governor has caught the eye of Lynyrd Skynyrd singer Johnny Van Zant with his recent moves. The singer released a video with DeSantis’s office, and the results of this release are truly fantastic. If you appreciate Lynyrd Skynyrd and Ron DeSantis, we have a gift for you! Here is the video:
Here are the lyrics, per Louder With Crowder:
“You can take it to the bank, he don’t care what Brandon thinks at the White House
Yeah, he’s fighting for the right to keep our state free
Well, he’s taking on the swamp, and he’s callin’ out Dr. Fauci (Fauciiii)
He’s the only one fightin’ for you and me (you and me)
Yeah, we’re free!
Down in Sweet Florida”

One could call this song a love letter to Florida. But really, it is much more; it is a love letter to liberty. And liberty is not something that should ever be set aside. It is not a light thing; it is the fabric of our lives as Americans, and more fundamentally, as human beings.
