The last hour of voting during the finals of March Bandness was frenzied, to say the least. Thousands of fans of Alabama and the Charlie Daniels Band cast a ballot in the waning minutes. The boys from Fort Payne, Ala. were trailing until the end, when they surged ahead and took the title of Best Country Band of All Time

The margin of victory was less than one percent in Randy Owen and company’s favor. It was a valiant battle by both groups and their loyal fans. Both used Facebook and Twitter to urge their longtime supporters to vote and vote often. In the end, the statement was clear: Country groups like Lady Antebellum, the Zac Brown Band and Little Big Town may be hot today, but fans haven’t forgotten the legends that paved the way for them.

March Bandness began with 16 of country music’s all-time greatest groups, and over the course of a month the competition was trimmed to eight, then four, two and finally one. Alabama knocked off Josh Abbott Band, Lonestar and Diamond Rio to get to CDB. The Charlie Daniels Band topped the Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum and the Zac Brown Band to reach the finals. Congratulations to both bands on a well-fought competition.

 

 

Ummm … eternal bragging rights? Best Country Band of All Time is great for the resume.
