This Friday’s song is Mountain Music by Alabama. We have had a couple of weeks of sustained hot weather here in Tallahassee. Teresa and I have been thinking about planning a trip to the mountains in north Georgia since they are only about a six-hour drive away. That conversation brought this song to mind.
This song was released in January 1982 as the lead-off single and title track to Alabama’s album Mountain Music. I was living in Houston, Texas at the time. This song caught on fast and became Alabama’s sixth number-one single. It blended southern rock and bluegrass in a way that makes it almost impossible not to get up and dance to it.
Hope you enjoy “Mountain Music” by Alabama.
