Van Zant has a history with the show. He and his brother, former .38 Special singer Donnie Van Zant, recorded "Sweet Florida," a tribute to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and debuted the song on the show last year.
Kilmeade, who reportedly owns a home in Ponte Vedra Beach, ruffled some local feathers last year when he criticized Jacksonville on the show. "The city of Jacksonville’s got such great potential. They’ve got these bridges. Beautiful scenery. They’ve got to rebuild that city,” he said last March. "It’s just a mess. The city needs to be revitalized. It has all this potential, overlooking the water."
He brought his "Kilmeade Live: The President & the Freedom Fighter" show to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in 2021.
