Description
"[Randy Owen] is a true gentleman, armed with an unassuming attitude and a modest approach to life, coupled with enormous fame and success. Born Country is a great read!" --Dick Clark, former host of American Bandstand

Born Country is an inspiring memoir of faith, family, and living the American dream from the lead singer/songwriter ofAlabama, the biggest country music group of all time. A multiple Grammy, People's Choice, and Country Music Association Award-winning superstar, Randy Owen tells about growing up poor in rural Alabama, the son of devout Christian sharecroppers, his rise to the top of the charts, his personal trials and the destructive temptations he avoided through his love and unassailable faith in God. Written with Allen Rucker, Randy Owen's Born Country is both a fascinating look inside the Alabamaphenomenon and a moving portrait of an extraordinary life enriched by traditional Christian values
