Duo Van Zant is comprised of brothers Donnie and Johnny Van Zant. The two have been associated with southern rock, country and adult-oriented rock music and are brothers of Ronnie Van Zant, the former lead singer of Lynyrd Skynyrd. 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.
Van Zant has released five albums over the years, including one Gold-certified album in 2005: Get Right with the Man. They have released nine singles, as well. Their first single to reach the Country chart came in 2005 with Number Eight hit “Help Somebody.” It was followed by a Top 20 hit the same year, “Nobody Gonna Tell Me What to Do.” Their next three singles all reached the Top 60 on the Country charts, as well. “Things I Miss the Most” was released in 2006, while “That Scares Me” and “Goes Down Easy” were both released in 2007.
After the death of their brother Ronnie, Johnny became the lead vocalist for Lynyrd Skynyrd when the band reunited in 1987. Donnie has also sung lead of the band .38 Special.
