Charles Atkins - Florida Song

Atkins, 62, said he wrote his song after Ray Charles was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 1992. A reporter asked Charles why he didn't sing a song about Florida, like Georgia on My Mind. If someone writes a Florida song, I'll happily sing it, said Charles, who developed much of his musical talent at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. Atkins was there that day and decided to write such a song. A few months before Charles' death in 2004, Atkins played this song for his idol.

This is Tallahassee blues legend Charles Atkins performing "Florida's Song". This song was chosen by Florida Governor Charlie Crist as his inaugural song over the traditional, "Old Folks At Home". Atkins hopes that "Florida Song" will catch on and become the Official State Song.
