Forming his first band with first cousin Teddy Gentry in 1969, Young Country was the start of a long and extremely successful music career. 21 Gold, Platinum, and Multi-Platinum albums, 43 #1 singles, and over 73 million records sold. Add to that over 150 industry awards including eight country music “Entertainer of the Year” honors, two Grammys, two People’s Choice Awards, and their very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

I remember playing in my first band, Dealer’s Choice and we listened to Alabama’s 1982 album, Mountain Music in our guitar player’s basement. WOW! This group was on to something! We proceeded to learn that song and their follow up title song, Closer You Get as covers that were really fun to play.
