“Turn it up!”
So many angles to come at this one from. I mean, first off, there’s the fact that Lynyrd Skynyrd weren’t even from Alabama, but like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and the Allmans, were from northern Florida.
Or how about the weird coincidence that I’m writing and posting this during a moment where Alabama is central to the national political conversation in a way it hasn’t been in years.
Or maybe the fact that this declaration of state pride was a nationwide Top Ten single in 1974?
