Congress Honors Lynyrd Skynyrd
The congressional honor for the group came during a visit to Washington including stops at both the Capitol and the White House.
"The Lynyrd Skynyrd band is a true voice of the South and a legend in the music world. 'Sweet Home Alabama' is one of the best advertisements for my state and we now even proudly display the words on our license plates. We deeply appreciate the fact that the band does a lot to entertain our troops and support military families. They bring enjoyment to their many fans and it's a pleasure to welcome them to our nation's capital," said Bachus, who is dean of the Alabama House delegation. - more on this story
