The lead single from her 2005 album Fireflies, Faith shows off her Ridgeland, Mississippi pride with “Mississippi Girl.” The song was meant as kind of a come back country song for Hill, where she declares that a little fame hasn’t given her a big head- “‘Cause a Mississippi girl don’t change her ways / Just ’cause everybody knows her name.”

A novelty country song, Ray Stevens’ “Mississippi Squirrel Revival” is about a crazy squirrel that escapes during church and begins wreaking havoc on the service. Does that need any more of an explanation? Just listen to it, it’s good for a few laughs.


6. Sugarland Down in Mississippi (Up to No Good)

From Sugarland’s debut album Twice the Speed of Life, “Down in Mississippi (Up to No Good)” is a kind of “girls night out” anthem song to listen to on a Friday night while you’re getting ready to go out- “Friday, payday, Lordy got to get away / Had it with the wife thing, living on a shoe string / What’s a poor girl got to do just to have some fun?”

Found on her third studio album The Globe Sessions in 1998, “Mississippi” is a famous Sheryl Crow cover of the Bob Dylan song of the same name.

Muddy Mississippi by Reba McEntire is a song about making mistakes. The narrator of the song recalls how she met a nice boy and went to New Orleans, but did things there that she will always regret- “I lost my pride I lost my man / I did things a girl like me shouldn’t do.”

9. Conway Twitty - Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man

A classic by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, this song about two lovers who cross the state border to see each other is one of my favorite duets of all time. The song appeared on the 1973 album of the same name.
