The Story Behind “Dixieland Delight” by Alabama “Dixieland Delight” is a song written by Ronnie Rogers. The American country music band Alabama recorded the track. Released in January 1983, it was the opening single from the album The Closer You Get. On Billboard magazine’s Hot Country Singles chart, “Dixieland Delight” became Alabama’s ninth chart-topper. Ronnie Rogers, the Songwriter, also wrote hits with Ed Bruce, Dave Dudley, Tanya Tucker and others. When he was driving down Highway 11W, a Tennessee road in Rutledge, Tennessee, the idea came to him. Its first line: “Rollin’ down a backwoods, Tennessee by way; one arm on the wheel”, made Ronnie create a sweet image. While one hand is on the wheel, the other is wrapped around his girlfriend. After a long, hard work week, the character is imagining a fun and relaxing weekend with her. Mr. Rogers said all these to country music journalist Tom Roland.
