Johnny began recording as a member of the 1980s southern rock band The Johnny Van Zant Band. In ’85, the band shortened its name to simply Van Zant. The band disbanded in the late 80s. In the late 90s, he teamed up with Donnie and revived the Van Zant name. The two released their first album in 1998. In 2005, they crossed over from southern rock into country music.
