In 1982, ALABAMA won their first American Music Award for Favorite Country Band/Duo/Group. That honor became a running gag in an unprecedented streak that continued—minus a few hiccups—until 2003. The accolades are plentiful for the veteran performers: a few Grammys, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame, uncountable high-fives from adoring fans. Yet ALABAMA is the rare award-stockpiling act that actually deserves the hoopla. The hooks that fueled 43 number one singles and sold more than 73 million records are undeniable, and the harmonies of lead singer Randy Owen, multi-instrumentalist Jeff Cook, and bassist Teddy Gentry are as warm and fuzzy as their signature beards. They’re a country band for country fans that miss the days when country sounded like country, and they’re a country band that rock fans can cherish unapologetically.<p>
It’s been 11 years since the band’s last major outing on their farewell tour. Thankfully the word “farewell” no longer exists in the lexicon, and ALABAMA is back to celebrate their 40th anniversary on the Back to the Bowery tour. Hearkening back to the band’s humble beginnings playing for tips at the Bowery in Myrtle Beach, the band is eschewing impersonal arena shows on this trip for more intimate venues. While the set list could include any number of hits from their storied career, ALABAMA might showcase fiddle-and-harmony heavy favorites such as “Tennessee River,” “Feels So Right,” and their signature song “My Home’s in Alabama.”<p>
