"Watermelon Crawl" is a song written by Buddy Brock and Zack Turner, and recorded by American country music artist Tracy Byrd. It was released in August 1994 as the second single from his album No Ordinary Man. The song peaked at number 4 in the United States and number 8 in Canada. A dance remix of the song was released and crossed over to pop radio, where it peaked at number 81 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
The song chronicles the adventure of the narrator to a small town in Rind County, Georgia where an annual watermelon festival is held. The featured item at this festival is red wine made from the watermelons grown within the town. The mayor of the town urges people to abide by the law and asks them not to drive if they have been drinking; instead, they should do a dance called "The Watermelon Crawl."
Although the song describes a fictitious county, it likely refers to the Watermelon Festival in Crisp County, Georgia.
The music video was directed by Michael Merriman and features Byrd stopping his tour bus in the Georgia town for the watermelon festival. The video was recorded in McEwen, Tennessee, at the Irish Picnic Fairgrounds.
