The last time Alabama put original music out, the country genre looked a little different, and the band itself did too. Now 14 years later, Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook are slated to release a brand new album, Southern Drawl.
This year the Country Cares arm of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's fundraising celebrates its 26th year. Randy Owen has been the face of a platform that has included hundreds of country radio stations and raised over $600 million dollars. He says he has a successor in mind, and a goal to hit before he steps away.
Alabama may be one of the most iconic country acts of the past 40 years, but they're still surprised by their famous fans! On the heels of releasing their 'Alabama & Friends at the Ryman' live CD and DVD package, the legendary trio still can't believe they are influential as they truly are.
A 2008 lawsuit between Alabama and drummer Mark Herndon revealed that Herndon was just a paid employee of the band, not a fourth official member of the group. Recently, Randy Owen explained why he was still such a visible part of Alabama, which included appearances on many album covers.
The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame (NaSHof) currently has 188 members from all genres of music, and includes notable artists such as Johnny Cash, Jack Clement, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill and Loretta Lynn. This October, four more artists who have reached the pinnacle of their craft will be inducted into the prestigious group.
