On October 20, 1977, Lynyrd Skynyrd had just finished a show at the old Greenville Memorial Auditorium. They boarded a charter for a flight to Baton Rouge for a show at LSU. The plane ran out of fuel and tragically, crashed. While some survived, 6 people including Ronnie Van Zant died that night.
But Skynyrd lives on! You'll see them on stage at our iheartRadio Music Festival in Vegas in September. On August 18th, Showtime will debut a documentary about this amazing band. It's called "Lynyrd Skynyrd: If I Leave Here Tomorrow. Here's a quick look at it. Oh and be sure to enter to win a VIP trip for two to our iHeartRadio Music Festival too!!
