Brook benton rainy night in georgia

I hate the rain, so I waited for the weather to clear before making my escape from cold and wicked city life into my Georgia country home. But the lush smell of damp earth, the silent brooks, and the angry sky made me long for spring. So while the snow melted, I went back to work, writing a business plan that would haul me to beaches and palm trees.

Benton

"Rainy Night in Georgia" is a song written by Tony Joe White in 1967 and popularized by R&B vocalist Brook Benton in 1970. It was originally released by White on his 1969 album, Continued, on Monument Records, shortly before Benton's hit single was issued. "Rainy Night in Georgia" was a comeback hit for singer Brook Benton. Born Benjamin Franklin Peay in South Carolina in 1931, Benton cut his gospel chops in the local Methodist church, where his father was the choirmaster. Later, Benton’s deep, mellifluous voice powered nearly two dozen Mercury Records 45s into the Top 40 between 1959 and 1964. Then, overnight, Beatlemania swept many an American artist — including Benton, off the charts. Brook Benton (September 19, 1931 – April 9, 1988) was an American singer and songwriter who was popular with rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and pop music audiences during the late 1950s and early 1960s, when he scored hits such as "It's Just A Matter Of Time" and "Endlessly", many of which he co-wrote. more »
