The latest exhibit at the County Music Hall of Fame has highlighted the career of the legendary group Alabama.

Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry, and Randy Owen got a preview of the exhibit Monday.

It featured guitars, handwritten lyrics to hit songs like "Born Country," and countless awards.

Band members said it was extremely humbling to be featured at the museum, and seeing all the displays was like taking a trip down memory lane.

"This is a dream come true for guys from Alabama, who wanted to play music, to wind up here among our heroes and inspired us, is the greatest honor we could ever achieve," said Gentry.

The exhibit was set to officially open Thursday, Aug. 25 until June of 2017.
