Outranked only by California, Texas, and NewYork, Georgia is the source of much adoration from songwriters.

Al Green said, "All I can say is that there's a sweetness here, a Southern sweetness, that makes sweet music... If I had to tell somebody who had never been to the South, who had never heard of soul music, what it was, I'd just have to tell him that it's music from the heart, from the pulse, from the innermost feeling. That's my soul; that's how I sing. And that's the South."

On these web pages, you'll find many of these songs along with photos of the Peach State.

Below are links to individual Georgia pages, as well as a list of Georgia songs.

Although some of these songs have similar titles, I have tried not to duplicate songs. So when you see one title listed several times, it is for several different songs.
