Lynyrd Skynyrd Honored In DC

Lynyrd Skynyrd got the red carpet treatment in the nation's capitol last week when band members were in town to receive an honor arranged by Congressmen from Florida and Alabama.  A reception at the Capitol building honored the Southern Rock legends with the presentation of a Congressional Record tribute that credited the band for its "...accomplishments and patriotic spirit", and for what the proclamation calls the group's "...seminal impact on the development of Rock and Country music and a profound influence on the career development of many artists who followed in their creative footsteps".  The statement also thanked Skynyrd members for having performed for US troops.
