SOUTH HAVEN, MS Wednesday May.3.2006 / -- Van Zant got a special singing farewell from the Gretchen Wilson tour -- from Grethen herself.

On a normal night playing the second slot on Gretchen Wilson's Redneck Revolution Tour, Johnny and Donnie Van Zant would invite a young lady onstage during their "Sweet Home Alabama" encore.

When they wrapped up their participation on the Tour Saturday night in South Haven, Mississippi and came out for the encore, they were surprised to see Gretchen Wilson, her band and entire crew following them out to join in the all-sing. Gretchen thanked them on stage for helping make it such a successful tour and wished them well as they head out with their bands Lynyrd Skynyrd and 38 Special.
