In 1979, Ray Charles's cool version of GEORGIA ON MY MIND became Georgia's state song. Charles sang and recorded the tune in 1960. Well O.K, while Willie Nelson, Etta Fitzgerald and Michael Bolton also took a stabs at it..., Ray Charles's recording was always the best in my book. I alway think of this song when I think of Ray Charles. You? [Jan].
In 1979,Charles' version of of the song shot to number one on the Billboard pop charts also number three on the R&B charts.
I found this video of GEORGIA ON MY MIND By Ray Charles on YouTube. Posted by worldmusicHE777
