“IS IT TRUE WHAT THEY SING ABOUT DIXIE?
Next to Manhattan, our most popular song location is “below the Mason-Dixon Line.” “Alabammy,” Georgia peaches, cotton plantations and slaves filled the vaudeville music halls and theaters of America after World War I. Many of these song were written by New York Jewish songwriters who had never been south of Brooklyn. “Carolina in the Morning,” “Ole Man River” and “Swanee” are a musical tribute to Dear Ole Dixieland.
