1993: ‘Chattahoochee’ by Alan Jackson

The Country Music Association named it Single of the Year and the Song of the Year, so it’s no surprise that “Chattahoochee” held the #1 spot for the most consecutive weeks in 1993. The lyrics detail the joys of growing up near the Chattahoochee River between Alabama and Georgia, which resonated well with Alan Jackson’s predominantly Southern fan base.
