Few acts in country music have had more commercial success; enjoyed more media exposure; won more awards; and had more longevity than Alabama. Cook, Gentry, and Owen formed a band as teenagers in small-town Fort Payne, Alabama. For a decade, they honed their sound, developing a unique, crowd-pleasing blend of country music and Southern rock that earned them a contract with RCA in 1980. Alabama scored dozens of chart-topping singles while bringing younger listeners and pop audiences to country music. Alabama was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005, and the founding trio continues to record and tour.
