Found Some “Mountain Music” at the Alabama Fan Club and Museum
Get ready for some “Dixieland Delight” as you roam through the Alabama Fan Club and Museum in Fort Payne! Listen to some of their greatest hits as you explore years of memorabilia and numerous awards.
Once a car dealership, this building near downtown Fort Payne, Alabama now serves as a museum to one of country music’s greatest bands. Originally opening in 1985, the Alabama Fan Club and Museum displays the history of the band and some other group keepsakes.
From the original van that took them on the road to the uniforms worn on stage, this museum really documents the success of Alabama. Several aisles in the museum are filled with rows of awards received in honor of both their musical talent and generous donations to charity. Original handwritten notes with jotted down lyrics from the band members are even on display.
Violet Sky’s Visit
Growing up listening to Alabama made a visit to the museum at trip to remember. The amount of detail and items on display in the museum was amazing. I have heard about all of the achievements the band has made but seeing aisles of their awards really put that all into perspective.
It was a really unique experience being able to explore old band uniforms, equipment and even items from the band members childhood. I have to say my favorite thing at the museum was the handwritten lyric notes. It was amazing to see how the band created some of their top songs from notepads.
