KARAOKE SCENE MAGAZINE ONLINE! - Starlyter - Brad performs Georgia On My Mind on Karaoke Showcase - "Georgia on My Mind" is a 1930 song written by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell and first recorded that year. It has often been associated with Ray Charles, a native of the U.S. state of Georgia, who recorded it for his 1960 album The Genius Hits the Road. In 1979, the State of Georgia designated it the official state song. It has been asserted that Hoagy Carmichael wrote the song about his sister, Georgia.[3] But Carmichael wrote in his second autobiography Sometimes I Wonder that saxophonist Frankie Trumbauer told him he should write a song about the state of Georgia. He jokingly volunteered the first two words, "Georgia, Georgia...", which Carmichael ended up using while working on the song with his roommate, Stuart Gorrell, who wrote the lyrics. There are different views on the genre of this song (country/jazz/pop). You choose. Hope you enjoy my cover of the Ray Charles version....Brad
