Band of Horses have teamed with the University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band
for their own unique take on “Georgia,” the recently leaked track

needless to say, the BoH recording is not on their recent album Infinite Arms).
Bridwell of the group commented recently the genesis of the “Georgia”
began as a very random idea I had on my dad’s patio after we watched our
beloved Georgia Bulldog football team get robbed of a win at the hands of the
referees and LSU last year. I knew I wanted to pay homage to my favorite team
in song but didn’t have any idea how to begin. Once I heard Cee-Lo’s ‘Georgia,’ I was
immediately smitten and figured that’s as good as any tribute to any state I’ve
ever heard. It wasn’t until I heard his cover of our song though that it
occurred to me: Duh, we should return the favor. Incorporating the Redcoat
marching band was just the icing on the cake! This song is so nostalgic to me
as my parents grew up in Atlanta and have so
many family members in the great state of Georgia. It’s always been a second
home of sorts. We’ve played some great shows there as well, including our run
of annual New Years Eve shows in Atlanta
