Songs About Louisiana, The Pelican State

The state song is "You Are My Sunshine" by Charles Mitchell. It was a national hit in 1941 by three different artists: Bing Crosby, Wayne King and Gene Autry. The most remembered version is by Ray Charles from 1962. Louisiana themes revolve around Mardi Gras, blues and cajun culture. The area was once a French territory until the Louisiana Purchase by the United States. The Mississippi River runs thru New Orleans and Baton Rouge. The river historically was the conduit for spreading jazz and blues music from New Orleans to other cities on the river. The area has experienced unfortunate disasters in the 21st century with the Katrina Hurricane in 2005 and the BP oil spill in 2010.
