          Alabama's Randy Owen Writing Memoir

June 26, 2008Alabama lead vocalist Randy Owen is writ-
ing his autobiography, Born Country, to be in book
stores on Nov. 11 to coincide with the release of his 
first solo album, One on One. Owen is co-writing the 
book with Los Angeles-based author Allen Rucker for 
publication by HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins 
Publishers. The book details Owen's life as the son of 
sharecroppers in northern Alabama and his involvement 
in the formation of Wild Country, the band that was 
later renamed Alabama. He also discusses the rise of 
the band's success and its induction into the Country 
Music Hall of Fame. "This book was really something 
important for me to do for my family," Owen says. "We 
touched on every segment of my life -- it's really a 
microcosm of my life. God had a big plan for me and 
guided me through the good and the bad. There were 
definitely painful parts that were hard to relive."

   Ejected Audience Member Is Still a Tim McGraw Fan

Tim McGrawMarcus Nirschl, 30, a union glazer from Kent, 
Wash., still likes Tim McGraw -- even after the singer 
pulled him onstage at Tuesday's (June 24) concert, 
apparently ready for a fight.

The entire incident was captured in an amateur video 
taken by a fan during the show at the White River 
Amphitheatre in Auburn, Wash. McGraw pulled Nirschl 
onstage after what appeared to be an altercation in 
the front rows of the audience. With assistance from 
the stage crew, the fan was quickly removed from the 
concert.

"I had a third row seat I paid $120 for," Nirschl told 
CMT.com during an interview Thursday (June 26). "And I 
was just making my way up to my seat because I wanted 
to be up there when he started 'Indian Outlaw.' I was 
getting shoved up against some empty seats, and I may 
have pushed some people when I was trying to get my 
balance. But I didn't grab nobody's hair, and I didn't 
hit nobody. I'm the nicest guy you'll ever meet."

What happened next is still confusing to Nirschl. His 
cowboy hat fell off in the chaos, so he bent down to 
grab it.

"Next thing I knew, Tim was saying, 'Get rid of this 
guy,'" he recalled. "But when he reached out for my 
hand, I thought he recognized me, because I've been 
to about six of his shows. I really thought he wanted 
to pull me onstage for some dancing and stuff."

Eager to join McGraw, Nirschl stepped up on an empty 
chair.

"But then Tim grabbed me by the back of my belt and 
pulled me up and then threw me across the stage," he 
said. "And then I see his fist is back, ready to 
punch me. I still don't understand it."

He added that while he'd had a couple beers, he was 
not drunk.

"If I was, I wouldn't remember any of this," Nirschl 
said. "But I remember it all."

After security escorted Nirschl backstage in a headlock, 
he had to tell his story to six law enforcement officers 
waiting for him. No charges have been filed in connection 
with the incident.

"I showed them my ticket, but they still made me leave," 
he said.

Nirschl says he'll go back when McGraw's next tour stops 
near Seattle.

"I still like the guy," he said. "The music's still 
great. I just don't know why he wanted to punch me."
