Country supergroup Alabama was honored yesterday in New York at the United Nations, accepting the International Quality of Life Award from the College of Human Sciences at Auburn University. The award has never been given to any person or group from the entertainment industry. Established in 1994, it honors people who have made significant contributions to the well-being of individuals, family, and community locally and around the world. Alabama's charitable causes include an annual fund-raising concert, June Jam, and the tireless work lead singer Randy Owen has done for the St. Jude's Cancer Center.
