Vicki Lawrence, "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia"
Misheard Lyrics:
That's the night when the lights went out in the dark
Original Lyrics:
That's the night when the lights went out in Georgia
A film was released in 1981 entitled "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia." The film is about a young singer and his sister/manager traveling to Nashville in search of stardom. As they journey from one grimy hotel to another, it becomes increasingly obvious that only one of them has what it takes to become a star.

Travis Child (played by Dennis Quaid) is a country singer who had one hit song and then faded from the scene. His ambitious sister, Amanda (played by Kristy McNichol), is determined to get them to Nashville where Travis can once again become a star. Her plans are derailed by Travis's lack of ambition and easy distraction by women and booze.

The two are separated in one town and by the time they find each other in the next one, Travis has been arrested for public drunkenness. To pay the fine he takes a job bartending at a roadside tavern called Andy's, where he meets and falls for a young lady with a very jealous ex-boyfriend--who happens to be the deputy sheriff.
