"Athens County" was recorded under the title "Sweet Maria (Athens County)" by Montana bluegrass group Mission Mountain Wood Band in 1977 for their debut album, In Without Knocking. The song "Shanty" is used as the "Friday Song" on various "classic rock" FM radio stations. Played at various times every Friday, it represents the unofficial start of the weekend. The song "Sunshine" was recently used in a Jeep commercial. [1] This song was also featured on the soundtrack for the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
