Alabama lead singer Randy Owen is preparing to release his second solo album, ‘Friends,’ this April. All proceeds from this collection of 10 original compositions will benefit the families of police officers and firefighters who were killed in the line of duty or injured on the job.

According to The Boot, Owen will be releasing the album through BLEVE Entertainment Group, an independent record label founded by retired Nashville police officer Mickey Milam. Their goal is to raise money and awareness for the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).

While in the studio recording ‘Friends,’ Owen brought along a camera and made a short video, which you can see here. It features interviews with Owen and the firefighters he invited into the studio, as well as snippets of some of the album’s songs.

As previously reported, Owen was also in the studio a few weeks ago with Brad Paisley.  He and his Alabama bandmates, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook, all pitched in for a song on Paisley’s upcoming album ‘This Is Country Music,’ due out on April 19.
