Lynyrd Skynyrd Referenced in the Movie ‘Cars’
One of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s most popular songs is ‘Free Bird’. Hearing someone scream ‘Free Bird’ at concert, a ball game or a movie theater has become almost a cult phenomenon. It has also been done many times in movies and my all-time favorite example of this is from the movie ‘Cars’. It happens near the beginning of the movie when Lightening McQueen is holding his post-race press conference. McQueen is introduced by his sponsor and there is an awkward silence until you hear it…from the back of the room, someone yells ‘Free Bird’. See the clip below at about the :05 second mark and you have to turn up the volume.
Lynyrd Skynyrd will be in concert at the Ford Center on August 1st. Click here for more information and to buy tickets. Lynyrd Skynyrd is presented by 99.5 WKDQ, Dale’s Harley Davidson and Bobby Wilson Furniture.
