What Happened to Dixie on Friday Nights?

Via comment by Ron Russell on Color Me Black

JUST A FEW SHORT YEARS AGO, THE SOUNDS OF "DIXIE" FILLED THE AIR ON THOSE  COOL AUTUMN NIGHTS AS THE YOUNG GLADIATORS PREPARED TO DO BATTLE ON THE LOCAL FOOTBALL FIELD.   THE FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS STILL BURN AND THE YOUNG MEN KNOCK HEADS ON THE FIELD WHILE THE FANS CHEER ON THEIR HEROES.  BUT SOMETHING IS MISSING.  SOMETHING THAT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HAS MANAGED TO SNUFF OUT.  HELL YOU GUESS IT, THAT HISTORICAL OLE SOUTHERN FIGHTING SONG ---  DIXIE


Live performance by the 2nd South Carolina String Band at the 2010 re-enactment of Cedar Creek.
