Designing Women was a CBS sitcom about the working and personal lives of four Southern women and one man in an interior design firm in Atlanta, Georgia. It aired from September 29, 1986 until May 24, 1993. The series’ theme song was Georgia On My Mind.
During the first five seasons, the the producers just used  an instrumental version of the tune, but for the sixth season (1991) they filmed a leader in which Brother Ray performed the song – in a special 1-minute arrangement – with the protagonists hanging around his piano. The leader was used for 23 episodes, right until the end of the series in 1992.
