Spirit of Atlanta placed 10th in Whitewater and moved up to 9th in Montreal. In 1980, Spirit placed 4th, just 0.80 from the Blue Devils’ winning score. The opening fanfare of “Georgia On My Mind” returned from the corps’ production in 1980. While the song was made famous by Ray Charles in 1960 and declared the official Georgia State Song in 1979, Hoagie Carmichel had written it all the way back in 1930.
