Another Texas Western swing band, the Alabama Boys were formed when Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys left Fort Worth for Oklahoma and not everyone wanted to make the move. Founding members were Don Ivey on piano, Cotton Thompson on fiddle and Darrell Jones on bass. Many folks moved through the band in its life, some going on to become members of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, showing that what goes 'round comes 'round. ~ Megan Lynch, Rovi
