And on this day in 1981, Hank Williams, Jr.'S "Dixie On My Mind" was a one – week chart-topper.
"Dixie on My Mind" was written and recorded by Hank Williams Jr. in 1981. "Dixie on My Mind" would be Hank Williams Jr.'s fourth number one on the country chart. The single went to number one for one week and spent nine weeks on the country chart. The song features Hank attempting to give big city life a fair shot (New York City in particular) but ends up feeling more dissatisfied than ever with city life and feels even more so that he belongs only in his native Dixie.
