KINDER, LA––Two-time Grammy award winners, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Country Music Hall of Fame members, and multi-platinum recording artists ALABAMA will perform in The Pavilion at Coushatta Casino Resort on Friday, January 13, 2017. Doors will open at 7:30pm. Show will start at 9pm.

Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook are celebrating ALABAMA’s 40th anniversary while touring in support of their latest CD release, “Southern Drawl.” The three cousins formed their first group as teenagers in small-town Fort Payne, Alabama, developing their unique, crowd-pleasing blend of Country music and Southern rock. They signed with RCA in 1980 and have sold more than 70 million albums worldwide. ALABAMA amassed over 40 #1 hit singles including “Mountain Music,” “The Closer You Get,” “Dixieland Delight,” “If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band),” “Take Me Down,” and “Close Enough to Perfect,” to name but a few.
Their list of awards and plaudits earned through the years is amazing, spanning more than 150 major industry nods, including two Grammys, the Minnie Pearl Humanitarian award, Entertainer of the Year awards three times from CMA and five times from ACM, as well as the latter’s Artist of the Decade award. They earned 21 Gold ®, Platinum ® and Multi-Platinum ® albums and were named the RIAA’s Country Group of the Century. They also hold the Guinness World Record for Most Consecutive Entertainer of the Year Awards for the Academy of Country Music.
