Jeff Cook, one-third of Country Music Hall of Fame group Alabama, has Parkinson’s disease, a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement and causes tremors.

Cook, the fiddle player and guitarist for the band, was diagnosed about four years ago. He and his bandmates — Randy Owen (vocals/guitar) and Teddy Gentry (bass) — have kept the diagnosis private until now.

Because of how the disease is impacting his body, Cook is now choosing to step back from touring, effective April 29.
