Country music is a way of life down south, and that's never more so than in the Cotton State of Alabama. Even though Texas and Tennessee are more often seen as the home of the genre, some of the most famous country songs of all time have been inspired by Alabama. Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote their southern rock classic in tribute to the state and the great Hank Williams even hails from there.

From Alan Jackson’s ‘Midnight In Montgomery’ to Eric Church’s ‘Talladega,’ there’s no shortage of country songs about Alabama and we’ve collected together a whopping great 100 country classics dedicated to the great state in our Holler playlist of The Best Country Songs About Alabama.
