On the Yellowhammer - I originally put the type of bird - a woodpecker - rather than just the more generic "bird". You might want to include woodpecker as a correct answer as well. Thanks for creating the quiz.

That's confusing, because where I'm from, yellowhammer refers to a type of bunting. I suppose it referring to a woodpecker makes more sense.

Woodpecker will work now. Apparently there are two different birds known as a Yellowhammer. The one in Alabama is a woodpecker, but the other one is a bunting.

Thanks for having a "y"-less type-in for the "Sweet Home Alabama" band. Tried about 10 things until I just went phonetically. And maybe consider adding "Tuskeegee" as a type in.

Lynyrd Skynyrd was from Jacksonville, Florida. Yeah, I get the song, but I feel like there could be a better question.

Why?

Because he thought there would be a question related to incest, due to the fact Alabama is stereotypically hillbilly, and hillbillies are (wrongly) known to practice incest.

Thanks to Drive By Truckers for the answer to a few of these questions 'over there in Hunstville, they're putting people on the moon' and 'Throw another log on the fire, boys, George Wallace is coming to stay' (as sung by the devil)

There are a lot of generic questions with the quiz that could have been substituted into different southern state quizzes needing filler (Bible Belt Piggly Wiggly, Baptist, Kudzu, Cotton). A question about a Jacksonville Florida band, but no question about perhaps the most influential musician of the last 100 years, Hank Williams? No question about To Kill a Mockingbird or Harper Lee and her neighbor Truman Capote? Lots of really well known people born in Alabama as well Hank Aaron, Nate King Cole, Bo Jackson, Helen Keller, Joe Louis, Willie Mays, Jesse Owens, Rosa Parks, Lionel Richie.

I agree, there were several generalizations that wouldn't fly for trivia about states in the Midwest, West, or Northeast ... but as the muddled "Southern" accents of most Hollywood actors reveal, the "South" is just all one thing, right?

Turns out NASCAR is an anagram. I always thought it was simply how you said "nice car!" in a southern accent.

No - by population within the city limits, the largest city in Alabama is now Huntsville. The Birmingham metropolitan area is larger, but that counts Bessemer, Hoover, Gardendale, etc.

Huntsville's city leaders back in the 1980s and 1990s had the foresight to annex large parcels of unincorporated land before the area grew in population - now that land is developed and inhabited, and it is part of the city of Huntsville. And voila! In 2022, Huntsville surpassed Birmingham to become the largest population city in Alabama.
