It’s been 40 years since a trio of young cousins left Fort Payne, Alabama, to spend the summer playing in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina bar called The Bowery. It took Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook six long years of tip jars and word of mouth to earn the major label deal they had been dreaming of, but then seemingly no time at all to change the face of country music.
ALABAMA is the band that changed everything. They brought country music to the mainstream and from side stage to the main stage. ALABAMA introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics, and sounds to the country audience. They have had 43 #1 singles including 21 #1 singles in a row, a record that will probably never be equaled in any genre.
They have won over 178 CMA Awards, Grammy Awards, ACM Awards and counting. They have earned 21 Gold ®, Platinum ®, and Multi-Platinum ® albums, and were named the RIAA’s Country Group of the Century. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
