The band released its first album, “(Pronounced ‘Leh-’nérd ‘Skin-’nérd),” in 1973 and saw huge popularity in the 1970s with songs such as “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird.”

After Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and backup singer Cassie Gaines were killed in a plane crash in 1977, the band ceased. It regrouped in 1987 for a reunion tour with Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie’s brother, as the lead singer.
