American country band Alabama is the most successful band in the history of country music. The band has sold over 46 million albums and has had over 40 number one singles. During the 1980s, the band released 18 music videos, all of which are still available and popular on YouTube. Country music lyrics as well as videos often refer to aspects of the American South, especially the Old South, and Alabamas lyrics and videos are no exception. These aspects include working-class people and their jobs in farming, cotton, textile and steel mills. Through cinematic analysis of country band Alabamas music videos “High Cotton”, “Dixieland Delight”, “Forty Hour Week (For A Livin)” and “Song of the South” in terms of their representation of Southern work culture, traditions and values, it becomes clear that these music videos strongly promote a nostalgic image of the American Souths white blue-collar working class society, their humble lifestyles, strong work ethic, and traditional values. These values include the importance of agriculture and family. The creation of a nostalgic image of the American South in the music videos is achieved by combining positively connotated aspects of Southern history and society while utilizing cinematic properties such as continuity editing and other narrative techniques often considered unusual for music videos. In order to successfully support these findings, this paper also discusses the American Souths location as well as culture and provides an overview of the Souths political, social and economic history.The nostalgic picture of the American South that is communicated in the music videos triggers strong emotional reactions among viewers, as visible through comments left on the videos on YoutTube, and may fuel patriotic and conservative ideologies among contemporary viewers.
