Randy Owen Gives Shout Out to 97.3 The Dawg and Sings ‘Angels Among Us’ [Video]
What a night it was this past Saturday at Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder as the greatest group in the history of country music took the stage.
Yeah, they retired a few years ago, but they're back and sounding as good as ever.
Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook were just impeccable as they plowed through #1 hit after #1 hit. Among the Alabama classics they performed were "If You're Gonna Play in Texas", "Dixieland Delight", "High Cotton", "She and I" and many more.
Bruce and I had the honor of speaking with Randy Owen last week on the show and the subject of St. Jude came up. As many of you know, Owen is a huge supporter of that amazing hospital. He founded Country Cares, an alliance of country radio stations around the country whose collective mission is to raise money for St. Jude. That was over 25 years ago.
So when it was time in the evening for the guys to perform "Angels Among Us", Randy took a few minutes to talk about St. Jude. (He was even wearing a St. Jude shirt.)
But the really cool part was that he mentioned his conversation with us about St. Jude. He talked about the fact that we have so many babies up in Memphis. He recalled that we have a wall of pictures of St. Jude babies who are now grown up, some with kids of their own.
It was a touching moment. I rolled some tape and here is much of what Randy had to say and then the performance of "Angels Among Us", which has become the unofficial theme song for St. Jude over the years.
