Chris Stapleton Honors Lynyrd Skynyrd Guitarist, Ed King, With Mind-Blowing “Simple Man”

Ed King, Lynynrd Skynyrd guitarist and co-writer of the iconic “Sweet Home Alabama,” passed away in August of 2018.

Many members of the country music community expressed the sympathies via social media and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in the industry that couldn’t point to Lynyrd Skynyrd as a one of their early musical inspirations. Recently, Chris honored Ed’s legacy with a face-melting cover of “Simple Man,” featuring some masterful guitar playing from super-producer Dave Cobb.

RIP Ed, you will be missed.
