Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle is planning on releasing a tribute to the band almost 50 years after his debut. “Anthems - Honoring The Music Of Lynyrd Skynyrd” is set for a February 2nd, 2024 release and includes an all-star list of guest musicians.
“This project has been a year in the making,” said Get Joe Records president Len Snow. “But when fans hear it, they will understand why it took so long… The music that Lynyrd Skynyrd made will always live as a part of rock history. This album honors that music and gives Artimus a way to honor his former bandmates.”
Among Pyle’s list of iconic guest artists are Sammy Hagar on “Simple Man” and Dolly Parton on closing track “FreebIrd.” Ronnie Dunn and Billy Ray Cyrus are also among the other names that contributed to “Anthems.”
