Alabama & Friends Featuring Toby Keith Released
“Alabama & Friends” features some of country music’s hottest stars — all delivering their own unique versions of the multi-platinum-selling band’s biggest hits, including Norman resident Toby Keith (“She and I”), Owasso resident Trisha Yearwood (“Forever’s As Far As I’ll Go”), superstar trio Rascal Flatts, which includes Picher-bred guitarist Joe Don Rooney (“Old Flame”). The album also features Jason Aldean (“Tennessee River”), Luke Bryan (“Love in the First Degree”), Kenny Chesney (“Lady Down on Love”), Eli Young Band (“The Closer You Get”), Florida Georgia Line (“I’m in a Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)”) and Jamey Johnson (“My Home’s in Alabama”).
“It’s very much an honor that they’d take part in an Alabama tribute,” guitarist Jeff Cook says in a news release. “We had a lot of fun working with them, and I think the finished product testifies to both the fun and the quality that went into it.”
