While this is one of the greatest covers of a song ever, it simply cannot touch Ronnie Van Zant
sad that's just the word

Very Spiritual. God above. All you need is in your soul
HELL YA

This is such a good song

Both versions are great songs and each have good additions to them.
He has a strong voice and puts heart into the song it can't be better ^-^

Makes me cry, although I still prefer Lynyrd Skynyrd's. Good cover.
Horrible cover
Very good band
This song makes me think of the song so far away from a7x it's slow and i think they are both cute songs
I appreciate the soul and feel he puts in, but there is, in my opinion, no topping the original from Lynyrd Skynyrd
Shutdown is awesome and I love this song! Goes together well
Aw ono Iit was extremely sad when they played this on Supernatural . . . .
I can relate to these songs a lot of times
I luv shinedown!
I've been desensitized to most misspellings in the internet, but I have to say, it bothers me when people can't spell Lynyrd Skynrd. The point is that all the vowels are ys, people.
I prefer this cover over Ls's
S**tty cover
WTF??? What's with the song credit. Ronnie and Gary wrote this. Pandora you suck
Shynyrdwn

Lynyrd Skynrd had the heart. This man has the voice ( still prefer LS)
Still not better than Lynyrd Skynyrd... but pretty good
Hell im 44 and i like this version much more than the old one .
I love Shinedown and I think this song is much better than the original!
Love this one so much better than original. Brent sings it with so much emotion it touches your soul.
Love this one much better than original. Bent sings it with so much emotion it touches your soul.

Lynyrd skynyrd version is way better
They stole it from lynard skynard
I actually like this a bit better than the original but I do like the original about as much. Follow me.
