    Great cut from Dwight, and his second straight–and also final #1. It’s funny, back in ’89 Dwight could release a cut like “I Sang Dixie,” have it climb the chart, and the only response was “That’s a beautiful song. Today, a progressive artist like Dwight probably couldn’t even release that as a single–lest he be branded “insensitive” (or worse).

        I’m guessing he is saying that some of the song would not be considered politically correct today. Lines that reference “rebel pride”, i.e flag, the “land of cotton”, i.e slavery and mention that L.A. kind of sucks. The song is really about southern pride which people like to correlate to racism.

          If that is indeed the gist of that post then perhaps it might be better when composing a comment to say what you mean and mean what you say lest you be branded as not knowing what in the hell you are talking about (or worse)

          For the record the world has changed in the past 30 years.
