State Song Finalists

December 11th, 2007 by flanews

It’s down to three finalists in the contest for a new state of Florida song to replace Swannee River.  State Senator Tony Hill and Representative Ed Homan made the announcement.  More than 200 people submitted entries. 

“We’re not erasing Swannee River,” said Rep. Ed Homan from Tampa.  “And people can sing it as much as they want.  It’s a part of Florida’s history.  We’re not erasing the fact that Indians lived in Florida or anything else about our history.  But Florida’s change since when that song was chosen.  I think it’s admirable that Senator Hill says it’s time for new song.  And the governor’s behind that and so am I.”

To vote for your choice, go to www.justsingflorida.org on the web.  The new state song will be revealed next month.
