On This Date: Alabama Releases Grammy-Winning Single “Mountain Music” Way Back In 1982

Takin’ it back to 1982.

39 years ago today, Alabama released “Mountain Music,” the lead single and title track from their multi-platinum album of the same name. Written solely by Randy Owen, the song would go on to become a staple in the Alabama repertoire, and to this day, one of the most popular songs of their illustrious career.

The band would also win ACM and CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1982, and “Mountain Music” would go on to win a Grammy the following year.
