🇺🇸 The DiS 50 states project 🇺🇸 - #1 - Alabama

Figured this could be a fun idea.

For each state we’ll do nominations and a poll. Submit a song (can be about the state, reference it, by an artist from there or whatever, give a bit of blurb if its not obvious)

All the nominations go in a poll. Winner gets eternal glory, top 3 (maybe 5, not decided) go on a big Spotify playlist.

Will it be fun?
Will I keep it up for more states than Sufjan?

Who knows!

Going to do them in alphabetical order so we’ll start with Alabama. Roll Tide! Lynyrd Skynyrd! Etc!

Get yer noms in (songwhip or Spotify links pls)

Some great shouts here, not to be a pedant though, Memphis & West Memphis are in other states.
Fire by Waxahatchee definitley wins Arkansas for my money.

Anyway for Alabama:

Gucci Mane is alabama right?

Stars Fell On Alabama is one of my favourite jazz standards. Love the Johnny Smith version, but this one’s a real heart melter:

you listen to that remaster/reimagining of dirty south they put out? the new songs are good, not sure about the new vocal takes, worth a go though
