Alabama Set to Receive Prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award
Alabama have had a long stretch of success in the music industry, and fittingly, they will be honored with a Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award at the 11th annual T.J. Martell Foundation Nashville Honors Gala on Feb. 25, 2019, held at Nashville's Omni Hotel.
The T.J. Martell Foundation is the music industry’s leading foundation that funds innovative medical research focused on finding treatments and cures for cancer. The prestigious musical award Alabama is receiving will be joined by one given to Nashville rockers Kings of Leon, who will be accepting the Spirit of Nashville award that evening.
The Foundation was founded in 1975 by music industry executive Tony Martell and his colleagues in memory of his son T.J., who died of leukemia. The Foundation has provided more than $280 million for research at nine flagship hospitals in the United States.
Alabama recently wrapped their 2018 Hits Tour, which showcased the group's 43 No. 1 singles, a run of hits in the '80s helped redefine the modern face of country music. The Country Music Hall of Famers' biggest songs include "Mountain Music," "Tennessee River," "Feels So Right," "The Closer You Get," "There's No Way" and many more.
