A Tribute to Garth / Keith Whitley / Reba / Alabama

Garth Brooks became the biggest-selling recording artist in the history of country music with smash hits like "Friends In Low Places", "The Dance" and "Shameless". Selling out arenas coast-to-coast, Brooks redefined how country music was marketed and crossed every boundary in the process.  Brooks "retired" near the end of the '90s to concentrate on raising his family - but recently returned to touring and recording...selling out multi-date concerts and breaking box office records in the process.

Keith Whitley began his career in bluegrass in the early '70s....moving steadily into hardcore country in the 1980s and bursting onto the national scene with the hits "Miami My Amy", "Homecoming '63" and "Hard Livin'".  Often credited with reinforcing the traditional country sound within the modern music landscape, Whitley's career was cut short after he scored the biggest hit of his career with the Sonny Curtis-penned "No Stranger to the Rain" - awarded the CMA "Single of the Year" in 1989. 

Reba McEntire - the redhead vocal powerhouse who morphed into the lady who only needs ONE name - dominated the female awards category for nearly three decades.   With hits like "How Blue", "Little Rock", "Whoever's In New England", "Fancy" and dozens more, Reba crossed over from country music to the pop charts; the silver screen; the stages of Broadway; and, of course, television.  A legend in her own time, this Oklahoma-born vocalist made the long journey from rodeo cowgirl to the pinnacle of every conceivable entertainment medium - endearing herself to millions of adoring fans in the process.

Alabama - the most successful group in the history of the country genre - scored an astounding 41 chart-topping hits from the last 1970s into the new millennium.  Fronted by vocalist Randy Owen, the four-piece band from Ft. Payne, Alabama, took the country scene by storm with an ode to their roots ("My Home's In Alabama") and continued on with hit after hit, including:  "Love In the First Degree", "Feels So Right" and "Roll On" to name only a few.  Briefly retiring in the mid 2000s, the group has since returned in recent years and continues to thrill audiences.
