In 1977, Rossington was one of more than a dozen passengers who survived a plane crash in Mississippi that killed lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, siblings Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines, and three others. Rossington broke both his legs, his arms, ankles and pelvis.

A decade after the incident, he rejoined the band when Ronnie’s brother, Johnny Van Zant, reformed the group.

“Over the years, we kept acquiring the land around us until we found ourselves with 80 acres of serenity, and Gary had a sanctuary,” Dale said.
