The song That I Hate Alabama is a favorite of Tide fans
After all, Bryant-Denny Stadium may have solved its playlist problem, thanks to one Tennessee fan who hates the Tide.
In fact, the stadium should consider blaring Nashville country singer Conner Smiths new I Hate Alabama song early and often during home games, because Bama fans love nothing more than soaking up the misery of the rest of SEC. Put it on repeat.
Smith states in the opening verse of the sullen ballad, "It's that one game every year where I drink a little more beer." If we go there or they come here, its over, she said.
Yes. More. More!
Smiths humility, Im sure, is something youve got to admire. Theres nothing better in college football than when fans can look inside and have a bit of self-awareness and sarcasm about the plight of their program and rivalry. Even after the Tides harrowing loss to Texas A&M last week, this may be enough for them to get out of the slums.

Theres a Twitter account called @SinceUTBeatBama that gives remembrance of how long itve been since Tennessee defeated Alabama in olympic football matches, to the day. Were now at 5,470 days, and counting.
Smith sings the same phrase in his song, This beatdown has occurred since 06.
Listen, we can all identify. What Alabama fan hasnt been mistaken for a Braves fan when theyre not in the state that can tell the difference between the script As?
We understand. Dixieland Delight is the fan bases one true stadium anthem, but we must come to terms with the whole on a Tennessee Saturday night thing. Yes, Alabama sang it, but do Vol fans have a claim to it?
Wait, this is awful. Fans of the Bama aren't opposed to kicking rival fan bases while they're down, but they wouldn'' t wish this on anyone. There's plenty of fish in the SEC, my friend. Is there a college football dating app out there? Dieser poor soul needs our help.
If nothing else, youve got to give it to Smith for rhyming Girl you had this Tennessean Seein ten years down the road. That is Southern poetry, worthy of the regions finest scribes. Pat Conroy or Flannery OConnor might have pulled it off? Smith's day in the sun was over, and they left it to them if that'd be the case.
Breakup songs are a standard in country music, but blending them with the Third Saturday in October brings tearing to our eyes.
Watch and listen to Smiths song in the video below. Feel his pain. The young man probably wasnt even old enough to smoke a cigar the last time the Vols beat Bama, back in 06, when the iPhone was merely snub in the eye of Steve Jobs and the PlayStation 3 would be released in fewer weeks.
When you see someone who is brokenhearted and you dont know if their girlfriend just called it quits with them or Terrence Cody blocked his second field goal to thwart an upset, its hard to tell down here.
Fans of Bama love the song "trash talk". One Miami fans two-minute diss track of the Crimson Tide was watched more than one million times before the Tides stomped the Hurricanes in Atlanta. Fans of the polar bear are in denial. They aint got 'em, rapped Coop in his Miami orange and green, armed with oh-so-distant spoon and grill. This is going to be how the games going, the diss track concludes. Bama fans, keep up the good work, because youre so slow.
Brian Oliu, a UA English instructor, performed his own diss track, more of merely sung word flamethrower meant to bring Coop and the Miami fan base back in their place. Flo Milli, Rich Boy, Doe B, The Last Mr. Bigg, G-Side, Dirty, Gucci Mane, & YBN Nahmir were all too busy to respond to @TheCoachCoops brutal assault on our beloved Crimson Tide so I took it upon myself to defend Alabama s honor, Oliu, dressed in a stunning Alabama Starter jacket with the Vault A logo, tweeted.
Smith recorded a catchy tune that has Bama fans dancing on social media. And the artist has a great sense of humor about it.
Conner Smith will perform in Alabama in 2021 if you want to hear it live. He had already performed at Tin Roof in Birmingham this week, but don't worry, he will return when s/he plays Zydeco in London on Dec. 10. See the rest of his tour dates.
