Alabama is an American country music and southern rock band formed in Fort Payne, Alabama in 1969. The band was founded by Randy Owen (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and his cousin Teddy Gentry (bass guitar, background vocals), soon joined by their other cousin, Jeff Cook (lead guitar, fiddle, keyboards). First operating under the name Wildcountry, the group toured the Southeast bar circuit in the early 1970s, and began writing original songs. They changed their name to Alabama in 1977 and signed a record deal with GRT, creating a minor sensation with debut single "I Wanna Be With You Tonight". GRT soon went bankrupt and due to a hidden clause in their contract, the band was prohibited from recording and releasing new music; they secured a loan to buy themselves out of the contract as the decade closed.
Bringing back a long-time Fair tradition, legendary country band Alabama will return to the Wisconsin State Fair for the first time since 1995 to help bring the Fair to a close on Sunday, Aug. 10 at 6 pm. Cousins Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook changed the face of country music with a staggering 21 straight No. 1 singles, including “Tennessee River,” “Mountain Music” and “Dixieland Delight.” Alabama has also been recognized with more than 150 major industry awards, including Artist of the Decade and Country Group of the Century. Tickets for An Evening with Alabama will be $39 and $29. All TRACK TICKETS will be GENERAL ADMISSION. Reserved seating will begin in the lower grandstand.

In January 1980, Alabama released the album "My Home's In Alabama", which included a track that would underscore far too many times in my life. Written by Teddy Gentry, it opens with Randy Owen rendering what is (even almost 34 years later) the most apt description ever: The walls of my mind / Are closin' in / Can't get away / Your mem'ry won't end / Can't forget about you...
