June 24, 1997 – Alabama: Staying Power
Alabama’s not slowing down after 17 years of No. 1 hits.
Talk about staying power. When Alabama’s first No. 1 hit “Tennessee River” reached the top of the charts, America was watching Dallas on TV, Urban Cowboy at the movie theater and listening to Eddie Rabbitt sing “Drivin’ My Life Away” on the radio.
Seventeen years later, the boys from Fort Payne, Ala., are as hot as ever, singing one hook-filled hit after another, including their latest, “Sad Lookin’ Moon.”
