Chattahoochee – Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson talks about the song in the liner notes for his 1995 The Greatest Hits Collection: “Jim McBride and I were trying to write an up-tempo song and Jim came in with the line ‘way down yonder on the Chattahoochee’. It kind of went from there. It’s a song about having fun, growing up. and coming of age in a small town – which really applies to anyone across the country, not just by the Chattahoochee. We never thought it would be as big as it’s become.”
