The Sounds of the Peach State

I have to tell ya’ll when it came to musical abilities God most certainly poured out an abundance of blessings on the Great State of Georgia.    Let’s start with rhythm & blues, Little Richard, Gladys Knight, Otis Redding and the Godfather of Soul himself James Brown.  Ray Charles certainly had Georgia on his Mind (don’t know that he’s from Georgia but man he could sing that song).   There’s Rock, REM, The B-52s, Georgia Satellites, and the Black Crowes.  Then there are my country boys (and Girls) Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, Doug Stone, T. Graham Brown, Trisha Yearwood, Jason Aldean and Jennifer Nettles.  

Now ya’ll know I couldn’t list everybody. IF I missed someone you love tell me and I’ll give the props.  Just hittin some highlights.   So let me wrap up by sharing some pics of my favorite sons from my favorite state. 

I think Mrs. Jackson is one lucky lady.   

 

All Travis would have to do would be to start singing the first line of Anymore and I’d be his. 

 

 

 

 

Now ya’ll may not know T. Graham Brown but he sang some fun songs and one in particular shares a name with my dear friend Darlene.   Here’s a video:
