Lynyrd Skynyrd was an artist I grew up with. My dad used to play his songs in the car when we were driving and we would sing all of them together, and I've listened to his songs more than enough to be able to know when certain instruments played and to be able to hum the rythm.
"Sweet Home Alabama" is a song by Southern rock band 'Lynyrd Skynyrd' that first appeared in 1974 on their second album, 'Second Helping'. "Sweet Home Alabama" was written as an answer to two songs, "Southern Man" and "Alabama" by Neil Young, which dealt with themes of racism and slavery in the American South.
