           Alabama Band Sues Drummer Mark Herndon

Mark Herndon, drummer for Alabama, is being sued by the 
other three band members for overpayment of $202,670 
generated from merchandise sales during their 2003 
American Farewell tour, the Chattanooga [Tenn.] Times 
Free Press reports. Listing The Group Alabama Inc. as 
the plaintiff, the lawsuit was filed in nearby Fort 
Payne, Ala., the band's hometown and longtime head-
quarters. The suit alleges Herndon was paid for his 
share of net merchandise sales before the tour's final 
accounting was completed. The suit claims "there were 
no net merchandise revenues as defined by the contract" 
once the accounting was finished. It also states that 
Herndon has demanded a payment of $65,047 as an advance 
on his share of profits from the sale of The Last Stand, 
a concert CD that is being sold by Cracker Barrel 
restaurants. In addition to seeking recovery of the 
$202,670, the lawsuit also contends that Herndon's share 
of future earnings should be withheld until the full 
amount is repaid. Alabama members Randy Owen, Teddy 
Gentry, Jeff Cook and Herndon were inducted into the 
Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

             +--- COUNTRY STARS CONCERTS ---+

          Alan Jackson, Kenny Rogers Unite Fans           
            During CMA Music Festival Concert

In what was reported as one of the largest crowds in 
CMA Music Festival history, the crowd at the stadium 
was on its feet as Alan Jackson made his way to the 
stage and performed a medley of hits including "Gone 
Country," "Little Bitty," "Small Town Southern Man" 
and "Don't Rock the Jukebox." 

"I've been doing this a lot of years," Jackson said 
between songs, "and I've learned how the country music 
fans are -- very loyal -- and I like to thank you when 
I can." But fans were thanking Jackson as he continued 
to show them a "Good Time" with his latest chart top-
ping hit. Line dancing broke out midfield and though 
it may have been 10:30 in the evening, you couldn't 
tell it as "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" blasted 
through the air. 

The applause and beer continued to flow, but it was 
the sobering and poignant "Where Were You (When the 
World Stopped Turning)" that provoked the biggest 
response of the night. Fans joined hands with their 
neighbor, some raised American flags and others 
wiped their eyes as tears streamed down their faces.

Jackson then appropriately lightened the moment as he 
announced, "It's hotter than a hootchie-kootchie in 
here," again bringing fans to another level of excite-
ment as he began the fan favorite, "Chattahoochee," 
and ended on an upbeat note of "Where I Come From."
