It was weird. It was happy, musically; but, it was a sad time... I think Clyde King called me for that session, she said, "You know, there's this guy's name is Lynyrd Skynyrd." I said, "Really?" She said, "Yes and he wants to do this song called, "Sweet Home Alabama". I said, "Alabama? Honey, nobody wants to sing anything about Alabama?" I certainly didn't want to sing anything about Alabama... My husband was 19 years older than I was. He said, "Oh, you need to sing, "Sweet Home, Alabama." And, I said, "Well, why?" He said, "You'll understand later in life." He said, "Right now you don't understand. Merry you're young. You don't really understand"... It was basically like a slap in the face. Ha-ha, Sweet Home Alabama. We got your sweet home, Alabama... Well, we gonna sing you anyway and we gonna sing the crap out of you.
