Greg Byrne wants to make sure Alabama fans are all on the same page when “Dixieland Delight” makes its return to Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday night.
The Alabama athletic director on Wednesday announced the school is bringing back the popular anthem for the Missouri game, with the caveat that fans “do it right.” The song was banned in 2015 due to the student section substituting some inappropriate language into the song, so Byrne posted a video to Twitter on Thursday instructing fans how to properly sing along to the 1983 country music hit.

The initial reaction for some Crimson Tide fans and media members was to flood Twitter with memes about the song’s return, so Byrne’s reminder was probably needed.
We’re eagerly looking forward to seeing how Alabama fans and students handle “Dixieland Delight” being played during a game for the first time in a few years. The No. 1 Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC) host Missouri (3-2, 0-2) at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday.
