Songs About Alabama, The Yellow Hammer State

The state song is "Alabama" by Julia S. Tutwiler and Edna Grockel Gussen. Themes for future songs about Alabama include the state motto "we dare defend our rights," agriculture and mining. The state flower is the camilia. The most famous song about the state is "Sweet Home Alabama," which was a hit in 1974 by Florida band Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song, which alludes to former Governor George Wallace, explains how the state does not fit the stereotype of the South characterized in the song "Southern Man" by Neil Young. Sadly, Alabama made headlines in 2011 as part of a series of deadly tornadoes throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Southern states.
