Alabama And Friends TV Special From 1982
Alabama is coming back to Tampa. I kind of got a little nostalgic and scoured YouTube when I heard the news. Alabama was the first concert I ever got to go to at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. I was about 8. My mom took me and it was back right around this time this video was made. My mother brought me up on country. I wandered more into pop and rock as I grew up and then came back around to country when I got this job at QYK.
I wish my mother was still around so I could bring her to the concert at Amalie Arena May 28. I’d do everything I could to pull some strings so she could meet them. When I was 8 years old, I didn’t have the connections I have now.
Check out this find. Good stuff.
