A Song for Every Southern State
BY: Dan Caffrey | Apr 15, 2014
The Council of State Governments defines the South as being made up of 14 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. And while “Sweet Home Alabama” has more or less been the Yellowhammer State’s unofficial theme song for nearly 40 years now, we thought the other 14 each needed one as well. Just one rule: in the spirit of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s most famous tune, we decided that every song had to include the state’s name in its title—even Missouri.
