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.
