American States # 4 Alabama - Neil Young & Lynyrd Skynyrd

 'Alabam'. You've got the rest of the Union to help you along.'
Alabama gets two. The focus of a famous musical spat in the early '70s. First Neil Young from Harvest having a go at its bigotry and backwardness. More  than reasonable sentiments though perhaps slightly rich coming from a Canadian. Then Lynyrd Skynyrd's response, calling Young out by name in the song's lyric. Maybe slightly better spirited than it might seem. Both songs are great which is all that really matters.
'Big wheels keep on turning.'
