"The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia"
Written by Bobby Russell in 1972 this was offered to Cher but manager/husband Sonny Bono turned it down it was left on the shelf as Russell didn't even want to cut a demo. His then wife, actress Vicki Lawrence decided she wanted to record it because she knew it sounded like a hit song. She recorded it and it was released by MCA and soon hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks in April of 1973.
In 1991 Reba McEntire covered the song for her album For My Broken Heart and it reached #12 on the Billboard Hot Country Chart.
