Southern State Of Mind

Album: Southern State Of Mind (2018)


  • The Sugarcane Jane duo of Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee developed a following in their home base of Alabama. This song is about the mindset that comes with the territory.

    "This song is inspired by the longing to return to the magical and mystical land of life in the slow lane," Lee told Songfacts. "Today's pace and constant struggle to make ends meet takes a breather in coastal Alabama where we call home. From the live oaks, through the cotton fields to the white sandy beaches, the feeling of peace and creativity is abundant."
  • Anthony Crawford, a longtime sideman for Neil Young, wrote this song with Buzz Cason, whose career began in the '60s. It's the title track to Sugarcane Jane's seventh album.
