“Wasn’t Through Lovin’ You Yet” is a fitting choice for the group’s first single off their comeback album, Southern Drawl. Although it can be easily categorized as a romantic ode to a significant other, there’s a special sentiment weaved through each line. It’s a lyrical love letter that will hit longtime fans of Alabama straight in the heart.
“It got my attention the first time I heard it, and I asked to hear it again two and three times and knew it was powerful,” lead singer Randy Owen told People. “It can be a guy talking to his girlfriend or wife, or it can be the three of us talking to our fans. Either way, it is a wonderful song, and we got to put the magic Alabama harmony on it.”
The single marks the beginning of a new era in the band’s incredible career that started in 1969. “We hope that a new generation of ALABAMA fans will find this music fresh, relative and exciting from a band that has been creating music for four decades,” Owen said.
Southern Drawl will be released Sept. 18. You can pre-order the album and purchase “Wasn’t Through Lovin’ You Yet” on iTunes now.
