Alabama steamrolled the charts in the 80s, thanks in part to little competition. And then in 1992 when all the competition was revving up they released one of the best country songs ever made. If it had been released ten years earlier or ten years later it would have climbed up the pop charts, too. Don’t know anyone who doesn’t like this song.
Still the most successful county band ever and they’re still going after 52 years.

I remember there was an a capella group that would perform at a lot of the art festivals where my mom had a booth. They had this song in their repertoire, so now this always makes me think of that.
Also, “Song of the South” is one of my earliest “not made for kids” songs I can recall.
Interestingly, “Song of the South” is very pro Democrat but now the band members are very much not Democrats.
