Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has announced the release of "Sweet Florida" from Florida natives Johnny Van Zant and Donnie Van Zant, who co-wrote and released their new single.

The Florida governor appeared on Fox News this morning to comment on the new song that he appeared pleased with,  "For them to do this is really, really special. I think they did a great job," said Governor DeSantis on Fox & Friends, "After I was in the studio, I’m leaving and it starts playing in my head! I played it for my wife and kids and my five-year-old daughter sings it. That’s how you know you’ve got a winner on your hands!"

The Van Zant brothers, both Jacksonville natives, wrote this song as an anthem for freedom-loving Floridians who support Governor DeSantis. The song highlights the leadership of Governor DeSantis over President Biden and Doctor Fauci.

“We gotta thank Governor DeSantis for standing and believing what he believes," said Johnny Van Zant on Fox & Friends. "He stands for everything that we believe. He’s been a great governor for us," said the brothers, "Our governor, he's red, white, and blue. Down in Sweet Florida, he’s shootin’ us straight and telling us the truth,” the lyrics read.

The debut of the song and its accompanying music video were featured this morning on Fox News’ Fox & Friends and is available for download on Spotify and Apple Music.
