The Southern rock legends are slated to play two songs, their classic "Sweet Home Alabama" and the title track to their latest album, Last of a Dyin' Breed, during the program, which will be held at Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.  Four teams will vie for the Chopper Live top honors -- American Chopper's Paul Teutul Senior and Paul Teutul Junior will compete separately against Outlaw Garage's Jesse James and Fast 'N Loud's Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman.

Part one of the competition will air as the December 10 episode of American Chopper.  Viewers will get to check out the motorcycles designed by the competitors and vote for their favorites. Then, the following night, the winner will be revealed on the Chopper Live: The Revenge special.

The first Chopper Live contest was held last year, and saw Paul Teutul Junior beat out his father and James for the title.
