Speaking of the South

Since this morning's post, I've been unable to get the American South off my mind. And this song is the one that keeps going through my head.

As another indicator of how much progress the country's made, I believe that when most people think of "Dixie" today, the images in this song --- much more so than burning crosses or lynchings---are what come to mind.

One of my favorite country songs. And that's a great video, first time I've seen it. Thanks.
