Scotty McCreery Is Asking Fans To Keep Alabama’s Randy Owen In Their Prayers

Scotty McCreery Asks Fans To Pray For Alabama’s Randy Owen

The mother of Randy Owen – frontman and the lead vocalist of the legendary group Alabama – has died on Thursday (June 2) in Fort Payne, Alabama.  

According to the group’s official statement, Martha Alice Teague Owen died surrounded by family members after a brief illness. She was 90 years old. “We will miss her greatly,” the post said. “But we rejoice in knowing she’s now walking in very High, High Cotton.”

Randy Owen, along with his cousins Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook, are currently on the final leg of their ongoing 50th Anniversary Tour – which has eighteen more concerts left for this year. The Alabama Band were slated to perform in Roanoke, Virginia, last Friday (June 3) and in Fayetteville, North Carolina, last Saturday (June 4). However, these concerts have been postponed.

The Roanoke concert has now been moved to December 9, while the Fayetteville concert will follow two nights later. The country group also noted that all earlier purchased tickets would be accepted on the rescheduled dates.

Meanwhile, Scotty McCreery – who was supposed to perform with the country group at their Roanoke show – took to social media to ask everyone to include Randy in their prayers.

“My heart breaks for Randy Owen of Alabama, whose mother passed away this morning,” the American Idol alum wrote. His fans then took to the comment section to share their sympathies for Randy.

Randy Owen Is Grieving For The Loss of His Mother

In an old interview, Randy Owen credits his musical talent to his mother and father, who grew up singing gospel music. In the early 2000s, Randy’s mother Martha continued to sing at church and funerals all over the county with her daughters, Reba Patterson and Rachel Carroll.

We will surely include Randy and the entire Owen family in our prayers. We’re sure that her memory will forever live on in the hearts of her loved ones.
