CANTON, Ohio (WJW) — Lynyrd Skynyrd has withdrawn from the 2021 Concert for Legends after a band member tested positive for COVID-19.

The band was set to co-headline the concert, which wraps up the 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Aug. 9, with Brad Paisley and Jimmie Allen opening.

According to a release from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Allen quickly agreed to extend his song list and play a full set leading into the performance by Paisley.
