Biography

Alabama is a country music band from Fort Payne, Alabama that was started in 1969 but did not get a recording contract until 1977. Alabama began by singing for tips around Myrtle Beach before going on to sell millions of records. They were among the first successful country groups since the mid-1970s, thanks to their blend of contemporary and traditional country and southern rock. On July 4-93 they opened a $7-million, 2,200-seat theater, located in Barefoot Landing-Myrtle Beach South Carolina.

The members of Alabama are:

- Randy Owen (vocals and rhythm guitar)
- Teddy Gentry, (vocals and bass guitar)
- Jeff Cook (lead guitar, keyboards, bass guitar, fiddle, banjo, and mandolin)
- Mark Herndon (drums and percussion)

Along with the Oak Ridge Boys and the Statler Brothers, Alabama is recognized as having paved the way for today’s top country groups, including Diamond Rio, Lonestar and Rascal Flatts.

    I am Russian and I live in Russia. In Russia, almost no one listens to country music, but I really like and not just Alabama. The music of these guys really touches the soul! Thank you very much from Russia!

    Fort Payne treats these guys like deities, and with good reason.

    Your biography is incorrect. Jeff Cook also does vocals.

    It seems that I own a guitar that's signed by Jeff Cook. Kind of odd but cool nonetheless.

    Why did you sue Alabama 3? They don't even play the same genre of music you utter tossers. Bloody typical 'sue everybody' mentality of your nation. Keerist almighty, you aint fit to breathe anything but swamp gas ya phukkers. Soooooo angry that you get away with shite like that. Musically, A3 as they're forced to call themselves in your corner of the globe, are so far ahead of you, you can't see them anymore. Decent human beings you definitely aint. capo08 must have his ears full of cow shit if he thinks you lot are the best band ever. What a twat.
