New Alabama Shakes…

From the movie “Silver Linings Playbook”

Alabama Shakes – Always Alright


Alabama Shakes at Live On the Green!

Alabama Shakes started blowing up in Nashville right after their two night performance with Jack White at Ryman Auditorium.  After seeing Alabama Shakes, Wells Adams stated “That if  Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin had a love child, it would be Brittany Howard.”  Hope you enjoy this live version of “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes!  By the way, is their any other radio station in the country that would bring you a free show featuring Alabama Shakes?!?!?
