alabama aca awards American Country Awards: Alabama makes us nostalgicAlabama was on hand at the American Country Awards to receive the Greatest Hits award and to perform a medley of, well, their greatest hits. The medley included “Tennessee River,” “If You’re GOnna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)” and “Mountain Music.”

It made us flashback to being about six years old and listening to Alabama records with our dad. Their 1980s domination of country was incredible and we still love their music. Above, members Jeff Cook, Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry receive their ACA guitars.

We’ll post video as soon as we have it, it was a terrific performance. The ‘Bama boys still got it. And they are going on tour next year! Their “Comeback Tour” kicks off Feb. 28 in Houston.  Jeff Cook says in a radio interview, “Alabama’s agreed to do 15-20 shows next year, and possibly if that works out, we will do an overseas tour in 2013.”

What did you think, country fans?
