This week and next week we will be learning the song “Oh, Arkansas” written by Terry Rose and Gary Klaff. It is one of Arkansas’ four official state songs. “Oh, Arkansas” was written in 1986 for the state’s 150th anniversary celebration, called the “sesquicentennial”. It was named an official “state song” by the Arkansas General Assembly the next year. The music style is 1980’s vintage country-pop. Terry Rose from Little Rock is a popular performer in that region, and Gary Klaff is a songwriter from Chicago.
