VAN ZANT BROTHERS PURE COUNTRY

Some may know the new Sony duo Van Zant by the other groups they respectively front-Johnny Van Zant with Lynyrd Skynyrd; and Donnie Van Zant with .38 Special. And in spite of their southern rock pedigree, the brothers stress that their roots are definitely country. "We were raised on country music," Johnny told X Radio Networks. "Our father was a truck driver, our mother was a housewife. But you know what? I hate to say it, but a line from an Alan Jackson song, we ain't 'Gone Country,' we were born country. That's the God's honest truth. This isn't some kind of fluke here. You know what? We want to do more of these [country albums]. We love country music. You get in my truck right now and I guarantee it's on a country station." Van Zant's debut country single is called "Help Somebody," and it's currently climbing the country charts.
