Nashville, Tenn. (December 12, 2018) — Country music supergroup ALABAMA has signed with Absolute Publicity for exclusive public relations representation.
“ALABAMA is considered royalty in our industry and is without doubt the most iconic group in the history of country music,” says Absolute Publicity company president Don Murry Grubbs. “Words can’t describe how honored we are to announce the addition of Randy, Jeff and Teddy to our roster.”
Next year marks five decades since ALABAMA originally formed in 1969. Information on the band’s “50th Anniversary” celebration will be announced soon.
It’s been nearly 50 years since Randy Owen, Jeff Cook and Teddy Gentry left the cotton farms of Fort Payne, Alabama to spend the summer playing music in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina bar called The Bowery. It’s a classic American tale of rags to riches. From humble beginnings picking cotton in the fields, to international stars that went on to sell 80 million albums, while changing the face and sound of country music. Quality songs that have become the soundtrack for American life are the foundation for ALABAMA’s stellar career. The group introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics and sounds to the country audience that has inspired many of today’s brightest country stars including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. While their music continues to stand the test of time, their numbers and stats are beyond compare. Almost five decades since starting the band, ALABAMA has charted 43 #1 singles, including 21 #1 singles in a row, and have won dozens of CMA, GRAMMY®, and ACM Awards. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and have their own star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, they are world-class philanthropists who have raised millions of dollars for various charities.
