    I don’t know if I’m exposing my ignorance or not, but I didn’t know what a Birmingham was until this song came out.

    I think Ken Mellons actually put this out shortly before Lawrence did, but Tracy’s version obliterated Mellons. I don’t know why that happened–nowadays, songs seem to be given exclusively to one artist for at least enough time to have a shot at making a hit.
