Songs About Georgia

Updated on January 29, 2013

One day I was thinking…there sure are a lot of songs about Georgia. Just off the top of my head I could immediately recall several. I began to wonder why so many songs are either about Georgia or mention Georgia. I decided it’s because it’s such a wonderful place!

Georgia is extremely diverse – both physically and culturally. You name it, we got it! We have mountains, rivers, waterfalls, beaches, islands, huge lakes, thriving cities, little towns, farms, industries, marshes, estuaries, a huge swamp, and acres and acres of forests. We also have Tallulah Gorge, which I believe is the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi.

The state has several interstate highways, including 75, 85, 20, 95, and 16. In addition, we have the best secondary road system in the U.S. At the other end of the spectrum, we still have plenty of remote dirt roads that are perfect for a nice stroll or for horseback riding.

What else we got? Lots of history – Civil War battle fields, antebellum plantations, Native American sites, old lighthouses, and historic cities like Savannah, which was spared by Sherman on his march to the sea.

We also have great colleges like the University of Georgia, Mercer, Emory, Georgia State University, and many others, along with college and professional sports teams.

Georgia has the world’s largest aquarium, theme parks, art galleries, museums, state and regional parks, a national seashore with wild horses, and one of the top U.S. zoos. We Georgians love life and will use any excuse to hold a festival. Take, for instance the Watermelon Festival, the Grits Festival, the Possum Festival, The Gnat Festival, Mule Day, the Swamp Fest, the Big Pig Jig, the Vidalia Onion Festival, the Arts in Black Festival, Wildlife Week, the Peanut Festival, the Pecan Festival, the Sweet Potato Festival, the Cotton Pickin’ Festival, and the Rattlesnake Festival.

Want recreation? We have horseback riding, hunting, fishing, camping, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, great golf courses (including the Master’s), tennis, mountain biking, rock climbing, panning for gold, mining for gemstones, white water rafting, tubing, jet skiing, and water skiing. In the winter, the mountains often provide sledding.

The people of Georgia, for the most part, are warm and wonderful. We believe in Southern hospitality and show it even to our Yankee visitors (lol!). Sure we have a few rednecks, but we also have our share of urban professionals. I’d venture to say that most of us are somewhere in between!

Dang – it’s no wonder there are so many songs about Georgia! Then again, it could be because it’s one of the few states’ names with just two syllables.

Enjoy these great songs about “The Empire State of the South”! And please, if you know any other songs about my state, let me know so I can add it to the list!

1. “Augusta” by Pinmonkey

You'll have to go here to listen to this song:

Yep, it's about Georgia, too! This is an awesome song - one of my all time faves! If you don't listen to any other song on this hub, PLEASE listen to this one. Rest in peace, Dan.

This is a cute song.

I don't know who sang this, but it's a great old Bluegrass tune.

23. "Walkin' Back to Georgia" by Jim Croce

I love Jim Croce! The original version wasn't available, but this guy does a good job. "Hard lovin' Georgia girl" - that's me!

31. And how could I have forgotten this classic - "The Night the Lights went out in Georgia"? It was first sung by Vickie Lawrence, and later by Reba McEntire. The original version is below.

 32. Here's another recommended by a reader - "Georgia on a Fast Train," by Billy Joe Shaver.

 33. "Highway 20 Ride," by Zac Brown Band. Ralwus suggested this one, and it's a great song!

43. "Chicken Fried," by Zac Brown Band.

44. "Toes," by Zac Brown Band. This is a really cute, catchy song.

      You know habee, until I read this hub, I didn't quite think about just how privileged I am to reside in the state of Georgia. It's true, this georgeous state has a lot to offer both visitors and its locals.

      Thanks for reminding me why Georgia is such a beautiful place to live. The songs "Georgia On My Mind" and "Midnight Train To Georgia" are my absolute favorites.

      Nemingha- I love Georgia by Boz Scaggs, but it is not about the state, it's about an underage girl named Georgia and you can figure the rest ;) My suggestion is "Georgia" by Elton John from his Single Man album. One of my favorite EJ songs.

      A really nice Hub - two of my favouri9te songs in here - Georgia on my Mind with Ray Charles and A Rainy Night in Georgia, though I prefer Randy Crawford's version. Is she from GA? I really like her singing.

      Love and peace

      habee.....the last time I was there was in the early 90's....my cousin had her wedding on St. Simons Island....I thought of visiting some cousins there but not sure when? My grandmother asked to be buried there so after she died, she was flown there and my family there did a separate service for her. She lived here in LA for more then 20 years, but she wanted to be next to her husband that passed before I was born there in Georgia......I would love to go and bring some flowers to put on her grave......I will get there one day!!!

      On a lighter note, you can't beat some of that cookin!!!!! The best fruit cobbler I ever tasted.....still not over it!!!! ha Best, G

There is a lot of Hip-Hop coming from Georgia now such as Ludacris, Usher, OutKast, Jermaine Dupri & others. Guess what Habee? Alabama has still got you beat on the number of songs & artists...LOL! I still love Georgia & would live there..My wife did for 10 years..

I am surprised you did not throw in some B52s ,REM and TLC too. They are all from that neck of the woods too ! And who could not love " Georgia on my mind " by Ray Charles. As I have mentioned in one of my hubs simply one of the most beautiful musical arrangements ever made !

      Thanks for all the amazing songs you posted. Was a great job! I'm living in Georgia for 11 months and I'll go back to my country, but a part of me will be here... Georgia is the greatest place in US ever!!!

      Thoroughly enjoyed this reminder of what a great place Georgia is. All the fun things to do and historical places to see, the topography, the people; and of course the diverse styles of music that you mention of with Georgia in the lyrics or title. Here'a a fairly new song from a Georgian: Catoosa County by fellow Georgian Shawn Mullins. If GA has a town called Rockville you could add R.E.M. I once lived in Atlanta as a boy and spent time in Commerce too. Thanks for this fine article, vids, songs and memories habbee.

      That is an insane list, Habee! Our daughter, Georgia, is going to have so much fun listening to all of your songs tonight! We have always sung the Georgia on my Mind song to her, but that's one everyone knows! When we were in Atlanta I brought her home a bunch of Georgia paraphernalia and she loved it. It was one of my favorite HubCamp stops. The people were so incredibly nice! Thanks for the list!

      Great job!! Your native Savannahian Johnny Mercer's "Moon River" and Jingle Bells was written in Ga. Oh Yeah. Boz Scaggs refers to one of your Macon Babies too.

      There's a song from the movie called "Mame" starring Lucille Ball that mentions Georgia a few times, I think you should add it especially since the movie took place there.

      It's called "The South Will Rise Again"

      "Strolling Along Peachtree Street" was recorded by Frank Sinatra, and "Georgia Sunshine" was written by and recorded by Atlanta native Jerry Reed. Both are terrific songs. Also, one of the big Hollywood technicolor musicals in the 1940s featured a song entitled "About 80 Miles Outside of Atlana."

      Alison Krauss's "Oh, Atlanta" is a remake of a Bad Company song from around 1979: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zoWZxLarXQ. Another good Georgia song is Little Feet's "Oh Atlanta", which is a totally different song with the same title: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4aM4cgIIOY

      I would like to find springs for twin beds which could be used as bunk beds or seatapre twin beds. They might have been sold by Sears? There are 2 wooden slats to hold the springs in place, which sit in wooden pieces on the bedrails. If I can find springs for these beds, I would like to pass them along to my granddaughter for her 2 daughters.The springs were not coil but elongated triangles fastened together with twists of metal.Do you know of a source for such springs which would not cost an arm and a leg to buy?Many thanks for your help,Aileen

      Bev,I am sorry to tell you that your 4'6 flat bed-spring has little or no mtenoary value or a market place. They were an inexpensive widely sold type of spring popular between the two great wars and for a few years into the fifties. They are not more than a metal hammock with no support in the middle, but they do last forever, and maybe, just maybe, provide a less hospitable home to vermin than an upholstered box spring.Marshall Coyle
