Alabama, one of the most well-known bands in the country music genre, celebrated with country music fans last night at the Country Music Hall of Fame, in Nashville, TN. The performance was in honor of their recently released album, “Southern Drawl,” and their upcoming exhibit, “Song of the South,” opening at the landmark venue August 25th and running through June 2017. During the performance, the trio showcased some of their most popular hits such as “Mountain Music,” “Dixieland Delight,” “Love in the First Degree,” and “Song of the South.”

After signing with RCA Records in 1980 the band’s fame took off and it hasn’t slowed down since. Cousins Jeff Cook and Teddy Gentry along with Randy Owen make up the world-renowned band that has 43 No. 1 singles, over 40 chart topping singles, and sold more than 73 million albums. With 150 industry awards, Alabama has proven themselves to be one of the true country music trailblazers.

Alabama’s latest album sticks to their traditional roots and is the twenty-third studio album the group. “Southern Drawl,” released last September, reached #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and is their first album of new material since 2001. RFD-TV talked with the band in 2015 about the new album.

Alabama also cares about the farmers that keep America fed. During the performance, the band said thank you’s onstage to the Armed Forces, farmers, ranchers and students that participate in FFA and 4-H.
