"Feels So Right" by Alabama

Song#:  0626
Date:  06/06/1981
Debut:  87
Peak:  20
Weeks:  22
Genre:  Country Crossover

Pop Bits:  Some members of this group began playing together in the late 60s before officially forming as Wildcountry in 1973. When they got their first record deal in 1977, the label requested a name change and they became The Alabama Band. After some label and management issues, the band found themselves a new home at RCA Records and their fourth LP "My Home's in Alabama" was issued. It was a major success hitting #3 on the country album chart with two singles reaching the top of the country singles chart - the first two in a streak of 21 consecutive #1's. Their next LP "Feel So Right" was an even bigger success and it featured this #1 country title track single that found it's way to the pop Top 20 and #9 AC.

ReduxReview:  This is just a really pretty song with Randy Owens' voice grabbing you from the opening line. The group had tons of hits with a few hitting the pop chart, but for me this is their best moment.

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia:  This song got Alabama a Grammy nomination for Best Country & Western Vocal Performance, Duo or Group. The album also won the Academy of Country Music's Album of the Year award.
