Further complicating the racial politics of the song is the fact that Merry Clayton and Clydie King,
two well-known African-American studio singers, served as backing
vocalists on the track. In a 2013 interview, Clayton spoke at length
about her decision to take the job. In her recollection, her initial
response was negative: "[Clydie King] said the song was 'Sweet Home
Alabama.' There was a silence on the phone for quite a while. I said,
'Clydie, are you serious? I’m not singing nothing about nobody’s sweet
home Alabama. Period.'”  Nonetheless, Clayton was persuaded to take the
job, to "let the music be [her] protest."
