Alabama is a country music band composed of Randy Owen, Jeff Cook, and Teddy Gentry. Its discography comprises nineteen studio albums, including sixteen for RCA Nashville, as well as two Christmas albums and two Christian music albums. Alabama also charted sixty-four singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts (not counting Christmas releases and guest singles), of which thirty-two reached Number One. The band's longest-lasting Number One was "Jukebox in My Mind," which spent four weeks at that position in 1990. Several of the band's early-1980s releases also crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts, including "Love in the First Degree," "Take Me Down" and "The Closer You Get", all of which were Top 40 pop hits.
