WATCH: Huckabee Strums ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ On Streets Of Jerusalem
Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, has always prided himself on a bluegrass aesthetic – from a book titled “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy” to a Fox News show that featured a musical interlude for Southern rock.
Formerly of Fox and now with Trinity Broadcasting Network, Huckabee’s was in Israel taping a television special when he decided to busk the classic song “Sweet Home Alabama,” the lead single of the ‘60’s band Lynyrd Skynyrd, with his band. His troupe, called “Capital Offense,” nodded to their locale by donning yarmulkes.
