Photo: Clay Patrick McBrideLynyrd Skynyrd poke fun at their "good ol' boy" image on a special edition of the E! network's The Soup that focuses on reality TV programs that celebrate the rural Southern lifestyle. In a tongue-in-cheek promo video for the episode, titled The Soup Presents The Goodest Moments of Redneck Shows, several Skynyrd band mates are shown in their dressing room before a concert enjoying some fine wine and a gourmet meal while chatting in a refined, upper crust manner.
Some highlights of the clip include bassist Johnny Colt revealing that "Sweet Home Alabama" was originally supposed to be called "Sweet Home Greenwich, Connecticut," guitarist Gary Rossington mistakenly thinking "Honey Boo Boo" was a Fellini film and singer Johnny Van Zant declaring that his true passion is playing the bassoon. As the promo comes to an end, the band is informed that it's time to hit the stage, and guitarist Rickey Medlocke announces, "Well chaps, it's time to redneck it on up again!"
The Soup Presents The Goodest Moments of Redneck Shows premieres Sunday at 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT. Check out the promo clip online now.
