Bringing back a long-time Fair tradition, legendary country band Alabama will return to the Wisconsin State Fair for the first time in 13 years to help bring the Fair to a close on Sunday, Aug. 10. After Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook left their home in Fort Payne, Ala. to spend the next six years playing bar gigs and collecting tips, the trio of young cousins signed their first record deal in 1977. They immediately changed the face of country music with a staggering 21 straight No. 1 singles, including “Tennessee River,” “Mountain Music” and “Dixieland Delight” – a record unmatched in any other genre.
Alabama has inspired many great country acts as part of their amazing legacy, which comprises more than 150 major industry nods including two Grammys, several Entertainer of the Year awards, the Academy of Country Music’s Artist of the Decade award, and the Recording Industry Association of America’s Country Group of the Century award. After performing at the State Fair nearly every year from 1982-1995, Alabama is back.
