About Jimmie Van Zant:
With a TV pilot completed for his new documentary series titled: Jimmie Van Zant's American DeTour; concert dates pouring in; and his breakout album, Feels Like Freedom set for release on 7/03/12 via Sony/RED, it has never been a better time to be Jimmie Van Zant. For years, this veteran performer has been touring the nation and taking his audiences on a musical journey with the music that made the Van Zant family into the American music legends they are today. Jimmie’s white-hot vocals pay homage to the incredible music legacy paved by his cousins Ronnie (Lynyrd Skynyrd), Johnny (.38 Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Zant), and Donnie (.38 Special, Van Zant).
About the Album, Feels Like Freedom:
On the new album, Feels Like Freedom, Jimmie assembled a top-notch, creative team of award winning writers and producers to continue his family's legacy. With an innovative, cross-over sound, recorded at Nashville’s historical Sound Kitchen Studios, Jimmie continues to carry the torch of the Van Zant legacy with a new generation.
In Jimmie’s own words: “I personally picked these eleven songs based on the lyrical content and the emotional melodies tied to them. Each song tells a story with true meaning and either takes you on a journey to some place, relives fond memories, lessons learned from someone or our own experiences. I hope you enjoy this collection of songs as much as I did recording them.”
