Sunshine by the Stars

Premiered November 2013

It’s been recorded by 350 artists in 30 languages, been a hit in four different decades and featured in dozens of movies, but “You Are My Sunshine” holds a special place in the hearts of Louisiana’s citizens because it was made famous by Jimmie Davis, who served two terms as Louisiana’s governor. It was also named the state song of Louisiana in 1977.
