Georgia On My Mind

Remember GEORGIA ON MY MIND? Willie Nelson didn’t write it. Hoagy Carmichael did in 1930. It became Ray Charles’ first #1 single in 1960. After Ray lost his sight he recalls his mother’s words. “You’re blind, not stupid. You lost your sight not your mind.” Man she was right. Ray studied classical piano, sax and clarinet at The School for the Deaf and Blind. And the rest is genius history.
