Alabama is arguably the most successful country music group of all time, collecting some 40 number one singlesin their existance. They formed
in 1977 in Ft. Payne, AL and renamed themselves after their home state two yearslater. Through some hard times which included addiction
and a creative slump in the late 1980's, they stayedtogether until their retirement in 2003. They do have a festival each year in Ft. Payne
where they meet fans anddo a special concert, and will most likely do so for a long time to come.
