It's been 50 years since Randy Owen, Jeff Cook and Teddy Gentry, left 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.

 

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. Alabama has charted 43 No. 1 singles including 21 No. 1 singles in a row and have won over 179 CMA’s, Grammy Awards, and ACM Awards. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and have their own star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
