Alabama was the group that made country bands popular again. Emerging in the late '70s, the group had roots in both country and rock; in fact, many of its musical concepts, particularly the idea of a performing band, owed more to rock than country. However, there's no denying Alabama is a country band: the bandmembers' pop instincts may come from rock, but their harmonies, songwriting, and approach are indebted to country. A sleek, country-rock sound made the group the most popular country outfit in history, selling more records than any other artist of the '80s and earning stacks of awards. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
