Statement on the passing of Dick Clark

"There would be no group like Alabama as we know it today without the influence and friendship of our dear friend, Dick Clark.  He is a one of a kind and never to be replaced icon in music history, and I love him and his family dearly."

- Randy Owen, lead singer of ALABAMA.

ALABAMA won 16 Academy of Country Music Awards and 22 American Music Awards.  Both shows were Dick Clark Productions.
