“This ain’t a game, people. I’m talkin’ ‘bout the Iron Bowl.”
Sing it loud and proud, Alabamians, because that is part of the chorus of this insanely catchy ode to the Iron Bowl by country artist and Alabama native, Walker Hayes.
The song came to our attention (and is now infinitely stuck in our brains) via a tweet from ESPN’s Ivan Maisel.
So if the anticipation of Saturday’s contest between the No. 1 Crimson Tide and the No. 4 Tigers is overwhelming you, maybe this song can hold you over for a few days.
Then, after Saturday, hopefully you won’t have to listen to the song again until next year’s Iron Bowl week.
