(hennemusic) Lynyrd Skynyrd have released a video of a 2014 performance of "Sweet Home Alabama" from their latest package, "Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin'nérd & Second Helping - Live From Jacksonville At The Florida Theatre."

Released last October, the set captures the legendary Southern rock band playing their first two studio albums - 1973's "Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd" and 1974's "Second Helping" - live in their entirety for the first time before a hometown crowd over a pair of concerts last April.

The biggest single in the band's history, "Sweet Home Alabama" was the second track issued from "Second Helping." The album peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 album charts while the single hit No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Lynyrd Skynyrd kick off their 2016 live schedule January 29 with a one-off casino show in Thackerville, OK. Fans are hoping for the return of founding member and guitarist Gary Rossington to the lineup following a heart attack on October 8.

The band cancelled a few shows at the end of 2015 to allow time for Rossington to regroup from the setback, from which he is expected to make a full recovery. Watch the video here.
