Alabama was formed in 1969 by three cousins, who wanted to play country music. The group initially kept music at the backburner as they had other commitments to fulfill.

Over the course of their career, Alabama have spawned sixty four charting singles on the Hot Country Songs chart. These include a whopping thirty two number one hits on the same chart. Their most successful single on the chart was 1990’s “Jukebox in My Mind”, which stayed at number one for four weeks.
