Alabama: Going to “Roll On” Once More?

September 15, 2011 Leave a comment

When I heard that Alabama, my favorite country act of all time, is going to be returning to the road in 2012, I honestly couldn’t believe it. But even though Randy Owen, Jeff Cook, and Teddy Gentry are in their 60’s, as evidenced by their appearance live with Brad Paisley for “Old Alabama,” they obviously still have it.

I don’t really listen to country music at all anymore, with the exception of Alabama, Brad Paisley, and a few others. I’m pretty disgusted with the state of popular music in general these days, which is why I haven’t really written much in this space at all, but for my first favorite musical act of all time, it’s great to see them have one last hurrah. I’m really thankful for anything they produce at this point, even if it’s just a re-hash of older tunes that they put together, it’s fine by me. I just hope I get to see them live one last time, although I highly doubt it. It’s just great to be able to look forward to a great act give it “One More Shot” (song title pun intended).

If you’re not really a country fan, I still urge you to listen to Alabama. They’re not typical country, and I can’t tell you how many people I know that can’t stand country love Alabama, so I really do suggest if you’re looking for something to relax to, they’re a great option.
