"Dixieland Delight"

We are honored to announce that we have acquired the rights to the hit song “Dixieland Delight,” written by sole author Ronnie Rogers and initially recorded by the iconic Southern Rock group Alabama.  

Originally released in January 1983 as the lead single from Alabama’s ‘The Closer You Get…,’ “Dixieland Delight” was #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and remains one of the group’s most popular songs. In addition to recordings by Tim McGraw and Old Crow Medicine Show, Rogers’ song has become a fan favorite at football games through the Southeast. Last year, a petition to bring back the song to the University of Alabama’s home games garnered thousands of signatures.
