A historic New Year's Eve performance featuring Lainey Wilson, Elle King, and Southern Rock Icons Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Lainey Wilson, Elle King, and Southern rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd collaborate on a rendition of "Sweet Home Alabama" on Sunday night (Dec. 31) at New Year's Eve Live: Nashville's Big Bash.   

This historic rendition of the Skynyrd classic is the first time lead vocals have ever been shared by women.  

A sea of fans watched on as the three performers gave an amazing live performance of the legendary hit from Nashville's Bicentennial Mall stage, anticipating the city's famous Music Note Drop at midnight.   

"Where the skies are so blue/ Sweet home, Alabama/ Lord, I'm comin' home to you," goes the song. During the chorus of the song, Wilson, King, and Lynyrd Skynyrd sang in unison.  

One of Lynyrd Skynyrd's signature songs and the band's highest charting single is "Sweet Home Alabama." The song can be found on the group's Second Helping studio album, which was released in 1974.   

In reaction to Neil Young's song "Southern Man," which blames the South for slavery, "Sweet Home Alabama" was written.  

Elle King interrupted her hosting duties earlier in the show to do a cover of "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around.  

King, who earlier in the evening left fans thinking she was unrecognizable, sang her number-one hit song, "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)," without Miranda Lambert.
