As the coronavirus pandemic smothered our nation, there were fears from coast to coast that the crisis could be used by the government to further invade the everyday lives of American taxpayers…But not in Florida.

That’s because of Governor Ron DeSantis, whose work to preserve the freedom of Floridians saw him chastised relentlessly by the liberal media and Democratic lawmakers.

But for those who stand with DeSantis, there’s a new anthem to be sung.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is being rewarded for his leadership through an exclusive song dedication by music legends the Van Zant brothers.

“Sweet Florida” highlights DeSantis’ efforts to keep Florida free, written by Johnny Van Zant, lead vocalist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and his brother Donnie Van Zant of 38 Special.

“We got to thank Governor DeSantis for standing and believing for what he believes…he’s been a great governor for us,” Johnny told “Fox & Friends” Friday.

The song was pretty on-the-nose.

The lyrics by Johnny and Donnie Van Zant reflect their perspectives of the Florida governor as they show their utmost support for DeSantis.

“He stands up for what he believes. So don’t come down here trying to change things we’re doing all right in the Sunshine State. Stay out of our business. Leave our governor alone. Down in sweet, sweet Florida our governor is red, white and blue…he’s shooting us straight, telling us the truth.”
