"Chattahoochee" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Alan Jackson. It was released in May 1993 as the third single from his album "A Lot About Livin' (And a Little 'bout Love)". The album is named for a line in the song itself. Jackson wrote the song with Jim McBride. "Jim and I were trying to write an up-tempo song and Jim came in with the line 'way down yonder on the Chattahoochee'. It kind of went from there. It's a song about having fun, growing up, and coming of age in a small town - which really applies to anyone across the country, not just by the Chattahoochee. We never thought it would be as big as it's become." "Chattahoochee" also received CMA awards for Single of the Year and Song of the Year. The guitar solo section is played by Nashville session guitarist Brent Mason.
