Georgia Peaches by Lauren Alaina

In case y’all are still wonderin’ what this site and southern belles are all about, I’ve decided to let precious Lauren Alaina explain it a little more. Here’s some important points y’all better be fixin’ to take away from this song:

  1. Be as sweet as your mama’s tea.
  2. Wear your short shorts when you’re in the summer heat, but don’t be lookin’ like a hooch, y’all.
  3. Show some of that famous southern hospitality to everyone y’all meet.
  4. If y’all haven’t ever listened to country music, bless your hearts. Start with some Alan Jackson and Jason Aldean. (We’ll learn more about southern hymns later.)
  5. Y’all can’t be afraid of a little dirt. A lot of southern belles grew up on dirt roads.
  6. Y’all can’t be runnin’ late for church, now.
  7. Don’t be cursin’. The only time this is somewhat appropriate is when a Georgia Southern football coach leaves/gets fired, another Georgia player is arrested and kicked off the team, or Tech’s 2009 ACC Championship loss is brought up.
  8. If y’all don’t have a ring on your left hand yet, dance and flirt your little hearts out.
  9. Other than wearin’ short shorts and sippin’ on sweet tea and lemonade, the best way to stay cool in the southern heat is by jumpin’ in the swimmin’ hole.
