Alabama is an American band that plays a blend of country and southern rock music combined with a touch of gospel, pop music, folk, and bluegrass. The band was founded in Fort Payne, Alabama (as the band’s name suggests) in 1969 by Randy Owen (lead vocalist and rhythm guitar) and his cousin Teddy Gentry who played the bass and backing vocals.
Soon after forming the band, Randy and Teddy were joined by another cousin Jeff Cook as the lead guitarist, fiddle, and keyboards player. The band’s first name was not Alabama, but Wildcountry, which they used while touring the Southeast bar circuit in the early 70s, writing original songs.
They took up the name Alabama in 1977 after two of their singles made successful climbs up the charts, and RCA Records approached them for a recording deal. Their biggest success started in the 80s when they had more than 27 singles hitting number one on the charts, sold seven multi-platinum albums, and received several notable awards.
Their first single under the RCA Records, Tennessee River, produced 21 number one singles. These include Song of the South (1988), If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band (1984), Dixieland Delight (1983), Mountain Music (1982), and Love in the First Degree (1981).
