Having charted 43 No.1 singles and winning over 178 CMA, Grammy® and Academy of Country Music Awards, Alabama, comprised of lead guitar/fiddle player/vocalist Jeff Cook, bass guitarist/vocalist Teddy Gentry and lead singer/rhythm guitarist Randy Owen, is regarded as one of the greatest country bands in American history. They’ve earned 21 Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum albums and were named the RIAA's Country Group of the Century.
The band continues to perform to legions of loyal fans, selling out venues night after night. They were honored with the ACM Career Achievement Award at the Ryman Auditorium in 2015 and won Bluegrass/Country Album of the Year at the 2015 Dove Awards for Angels Among Us Hymns & Gospel Favorites.
From their humble beginnings picking cotton in the fields of Alabama to becoming international stars that have gone on to sell 73 million albums, ALABAMA continues to change the face and sound of country music.
"We never thought playing for tips at The Bowery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, that 50 years later we would still play arenas, stadiums and festivals," says ALABAMA front-man Randy Owen. "Teddy, Jeff and I are humbled at the amount of fans that are coming out to see us. We are finding out that we are playing to three generations of fans who have followed us and our music from day one. The fans are the ones responsible for our continued success on the road and we love them."
Multi-Platinum selling John Anderson has one of the most instantly recognizable voices in country music. Over the course of his 40-year career, Anderson has charted more than 60 singles on the country music charts, including 20 Top 10 hits, and six No.1 hits including “Swingin,” “Seminole Wind,” “Black Sheep,” “Wild and Blue,” “Straight Tequila Night” and “Money in the Bank.” Anderson has been the recipient of the CMA Horizon Award (1983), Single of the Year Award (“Swingin” - 1983), Album of the Year Award (Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles - 1994) and the ACM Career Achievement Award (1993).
