What will be Virginia's new state song?

Virginia Commonwealth University's Capital News Service wants Virginians to vote in an online survey for what they think should be the next state song.

Three songs were proposed by The General Assembly as Virginia's new official state song. The previous state song "Carry Me Back to Old Virginny" was retired for racist lyrics in 1997. The General Assembly has been searching for a new state song ever since.

The bills that would choose a new state song are languishing in committees and must be acted upon by Tuesday (2/10).
