Country Standard Time are reporting that there could be a reunion on the cards for legendary country band Alabama.

The group disbanded in 2002 after an illustrious career which started in 1969. Last.fm Trends looks back at the scrobble activity of one of country music’s most loved bands.

Despite performing a farewell tour in 2002, Alabama stayed alive in 2006 and 2007 with the release of two albums – Songs of Inspiration and Songs of Inspiration II.

Whilst the albums charted well (the former reached #1 in the US Country Chart), Last.fm listeners have remained enamored with the band’s older material.

With 161,265 scrobbles, Song Of The South” is their most popular track – providing a fair chunk of their 1,503,233 total scrobbles.  Originally written by country music writer Bob McDill, Alabama’s cover version was released in 1998 on their album Southern Star and hit #1 in both the US and Canada Country charts.

With a possible tour and new music to come from the four piece, Alabama’s scrobbles may well see a steep rise in the not so distant future; they saw one after an ACM awards set alongside Brad Paisley earlier this year.
