"Sunday in the South" is a song written by Jay Booker, and recorded by American country music group Shenandoah. It was released in May 1989 as the third single from their album The Road Not Taken. It was their second number-one hit in both the United States and Canada.
The song is a recollection of sacred Sundays, namely in the Southern United States.
The music video was directed by Larry Boothby and premiered in mid-1989. It was shot on the grounds of the Colbert County Courthouse in Tuscumbia, Alabama.
