Can't you smell that smell?

Two months away from the 2012 Republican National Convention, the event's music lineup is coming to fruition. Politico Influence reported on Monday that Lynyrd Skynyrd will kick off the four-day festivities with an Aug. 26 performance. Trace Adkins (Aug. 28) and Kid Rock (Aug. 29) have also been confirmed.

Back in March, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney made a memorable run through the Deep South. On the trail in Alabama, he characterized himself as "kinda" being a politician, likened himself and a crowd of supporters to a "can of sardines," and let the world know that he was getting plenty of hugs from Southern girls.

Now that Southern rock is set to be a fixture in Tampa, Fla., HuffPost Politics has compiled a lineup of 10 Romney campaign moments where Lynyrd Skynyrd should have been in attendance.
