The legendary Van Zant brothers wrote “Sweet Florida” for Gov. Ron DeSantis, which he dubbed the “song of the summer.”
Johnny Van Zant, lead vocalist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and his brother Donnie Van Zant of 38 Special told “Fox & Friends” they penned it because DeSantis has been a great governor.
The brothers wrote the song in a few hours after the Republican leader called them and said he was running for re-election.
“He stands up for what he believes. So don’t come down here trying to change things we’re doing all right in the Sunshine State. Stay out of our business. Leave our governor alone. Down in sweet, sweet Florida our governor is red, white and blue…he’s shooting us straight, telling us the truth.”
“We really appreciate you guys doing it…I think it’s really, really special. They did a great job, and it is a catchy song,” DeSantis noted.
