Alabama is a band an America country, southern rock, and bluegrass band formed in Fort Payne, Alabama in 1969. The band was founded by Randy Owen, the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist, and his cousin Teddy Gentry, the bass guitarist and background vocalist, also joined by their other cousin Jeff Cook on lead guitar, fiddle, and background vocals. Alabama first started performing under the name Wildcountry, touring the southeast bar circuit in the early 1970s. The band changed their name to Alabama in 1977 after the success of their two chart topping singles and signed to RCA records. One of Alabama’s biggest successes came in the 1980s when the band had over 27 number one hits, 7 multi-platinum albums and received numerous awards.
After singing to RCA Records, Alabama released their first single “Tennessee River” as well as their number one single, “Love in the First Degree” released in 1981, “Mountain Magic”, released in 1982, “Dixieland Delight”, released in 1983, “If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)” in 1984 and “Song of the South”, released in 1987. Alabama’s blend of traditional country music and southern rock combined with elements of gospel and pop gave the band a crossover sound which led to their success into the 90s and 2000s, helping them sell over 75 million records worldwide, making Alabama one of the bestselling recording artists of all time.
Alabama is also one of the most awarded bands of all time, winning over 200 awards from a variety of organizations including academy awards and country music awards. Although Alabama took a brief hiatus, they reunited in 2015 and started recording again. Alabama released their 2015 album, the first in 14 years, titled Southern Draw.

Alabama Reunion Southern Drawl Tour 2017
Even though the band stayed out of the limelight for years, they began hinting at a reunion in 2011. In September, Alabama released their first record in 14 years, Southern Drawl and embarked on their 2016 Southern Drawl Tour in support of the new album. Sadly, as of the spring of 2017, Alabama will slightly change their tour: beginning in May, Cook will no longer tour regularly with the band due to his Parkinson’s disease. Starting April 29, Cook is choosing to take a step back because of how the disease is affecting his body. Although Cook stops touring, he is still planning on returning for a show in Orange Beach, Alabama and a fan event in June. As he says, he still plans to attend some shows depending on how he is feeling.
