It’s been 50 years since Randy, Jeff and Teddy left the cotton farms of Fort Payne, Alabama to spend the summer playing music in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina bar called The Bowery. From humble beginnings to international stars that went on to sell 80 million albums while changing the face and sound of country music, it is a classic American tale of rags to riches.
Quality songs that have become the soundtrack for American life are the foundation for ALABAMA’s stellar career. Alabama introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics and sounds to the country audience that has inspired many of today’s brightest country stars including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan.
While their music continues to stand the test of time, their numbers and stats are beyond compare. 50 years since starting the band, Alabama has charted 43 #1 singles including 21 #1 singles in a row and have won over 179 CMA Awards, Grammy Awards, and ACM Awards. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and have their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They are also world-class philanthropists who have raised over 250 Million dollars for charity.
