On November 14, 1960 Ray Charles went to No.1 on the US singles chart with Georgia On My Mind. This song was originally by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell and was covered by Ray Charles. Carmichael and Gorrell made the lyrics ambiguous enough, that the song can refer to either a woman named Georgia or the state itself.

It went on to become the official state song of Georgia in 1979.
