Rita Coolidge, Jake Owen, and Brian Kelley (the Florida half of Florida Georgia Line) are on the Florida State alumni list. John Anderson never attended FSU, but he earns a link due to his song, Seminole Wind.
I like some Rap and Country, but I favor Rock and POP. I’m just looking for who I might allude to in my novel; I use theme related allusions and Florida is one of my themes. I also have a James bond theme, so I need to think harder on Rita and Octopussy. Seminole Wind makes for an easy allusion and will most likely make my cut. I see some song titles; which interest me, but Jake Owen and Brian Kelly are more debatable.. I make these posts to help me keep track of whom to consider.
I’m searching mainly for what goes best with the Seminole war chant. I still feel a more spiritual style fits best, but something with a bit of rowdiness will work, too. Even though I only will use the song title and no one will actually hear the song; I still prefer to match style. The political correctness issue probably affects the number of Seminole related songs. I may send Slim Whitman and his Indian Love Call up to FSU. I have some more ideas in Rock music. I think a Country music alumni member of FSU needs to show some love soon or I’ll move on.
