Yeah, we did "Simple Man" in November of 2003 for a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute album. There were a bunch of bands covering Skynyrd songs, but the last I heard it wasn't going to happen.


Yup, just thought I'd share it with ya's

Shinedown recorded a version of "Simple Man". Many people don't like it, but I think it sounds wonderful. The lead singer from Shinedown has a fantastic voice and the song is done in a very simple and pure acoustic style. I got to hear this live last year at Riverfest in Wisconsin and thought the sound was phenomenal (of course this version wasn't acoustic).

There's my two cents!
