In a recent interview with long-time Sleaze Roxx writer Ruben Mosqueda for KNAC, Ron Keel spoke about choosing to cover Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s single “Red White & Blue” as he stated (with slight edits):

“That’s a song that I fell in love with several years ago. I have been performing it for a while now. That song really resonates with me and the guys in the band, it’s the first single from the album. It’s classic Skynyrd and it was a top 30 hit for them back in 2003. Listen, we could have done “Sweet Home Alabama” or “Freebird”, but if you’re going to tackle Skynyrd you have to tread lightly and we went with “Red, White & Blue”. I think it matches up to some of the classics and it’s such a perfect song for this time, 2020 and what we are going through as a country. It’s timeless. We’re pretty excited not only about the single but the music video. That will premiere on May 28th on

We had some challenges when it came time to film the video. In this time of isolation, how do you do that? I was at Mt. Rushmore, our keyboard player is at a park in South Dakota and our bass player on top of a truck. We wanted to pay tribute to our nation’s truckers so everyone was in a different location. I was at Mt. Rushmore Ruben. Normally this time of the year the park would be packed. There wasn’t anyone there, no one in the parking lot, no one in the park and no one in the gift shop. I’m not a fan of the ‘lockdown’, but I don’t think we could have filmed an ‘epic’ video like this any other time. I think it’s going to turn into a video scrapbook of what we all went through in 2020 because we’re isolated, but in times like this we have to stand united.”
