Country music band Alabama successfully blended a variety of sounds into their music, including variations of rock and bluegrass to coincide with their harmonic and jazzy elements.
While the band has had over 30 hits on the Billboard charts since their debut, one particular hit has continued to resonate with listeners and move fans to heartbreak and tears.
The song “Angels Among Us” was a chilling ballad played at NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s funeral following his tragic racing accident, leaving loved ones crying heartbreaking tears. Randy Owen also performed a somber version of “Goodbye.”
Insisting that there are in fact angels present throughout our lives to assist in times of trouble, the ballad has, according to Alabama member Randy Owens, been called a blessing from countless people whom the lyrics have touched.
In a montage of heroic images captioned, “A salute and tribute to our Armed Forces and those who support them,” a slideshow was created using the inspiring hit. Exceptionally powerful images of both men and women were showcased throughout this compilation to emphasize the comparison of our military members to the angels referenced in the song.
