A Tribute To Alabama
About the Group
TENNESSEE RIVER was formed with the idea of bringing back and paying musical tribute to one of the most influential and vocally dynamic country bands of our time – ALABAMA.
ALABAMA is the band that changed country music. They reeled off 21 straight #1 singles, a record that will probably never be equaled in any genre. They brought youthful energy, sex appeal and a rocking edge that broadened country's audience, forever changing the way bands were accepted in the country format. They undertook a journey that led, 73 million albums later, to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
And to pay tribute to that incredible legacy TENNESSEE RIVER was born.
Already established as a strong cross-over vocal ensemble project, the members of TENNESSEE RIVER wanted to showcase their own vocal prowess by paying homage to the band they felt transformed country music with their stellar vocal blend. Prior to forming as TENNESSEE RIVER, these seven gifted concert musicians had performed internationally in various country and rock projects, and have frequently been compared to such legendary bands as the Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Diamond Rio, and of course ALABAMA.
TENNESSEE RIVER is the first and ONLY tribute band that has the vocal chops to do Alabama’s music justice, with their new hybrid of contemporary cross-over music, bringing a fusion of the rural and urban sounds of modern-day country and blues, with the spirit of rock 'n' roll, TENNESSEE RIVER stays true to the essence of Alabama’s music, taking their chart-topping songs and adding their own fresh, modern and unique energy, bringing Alabama’s music alive again for a whole new generation of country music fans.
