Ultimate Classic Rock is proud to present the premiere of ‘Ready to Fly,’ the new lyric video from Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song appears on their most recent album, ‘Last of a Dyin’ Breed,’ which was released last August. Our review singled out the song as an “impressively heart-tugging power ballad.”

The video features ‘Ready to Fly’s’ lyrics scrolling across the screen as images related to the song appear. ‘Ready to Fly’ is the account of a man dealing with the impending death of his mother. But the woman is facing her plight with dignity, knowing that, in Heaven, she’ll be reunited with her family and friends and, most importantly, her husband who was killed in Vietnam.

Musically, it finds the band in anthemic ballad mode, with piano and strings sweeping majestically throughout. But there are also plenty of guitar heroics, with a solo after the bridge and, in the coda, some guitar harmonies in the classic Southern rock tradition.

Back in November, Ultimate Classic Rock premiered the video for ‘Homegrown,’ the second single from ‘Last of a Dyin’ Breed.’
