Mark Herndon, the former drummer for the band Alabama, has written a memoir titled The High Road: Memories from a Long Trip. It will be available on April 1 via Fresh Ink Group in Roanoke, Texas.

Herndon will be promoting the book at Country Radio Seminar next week. Although he is no longer a member of the band, Herndon was included when Alabama was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

“I began writing this book as a collection of my life memories to share with my daughter. I had longingly wished that my dad shared his stories with me, and I didn’t want my daughter to live with that same regret,” Herndon said. “Sure enough, after putting pen to paper, recollections flowed and I had enough copy to make a manuscript. I became confident enough in my story and with positive encouragement and inquiry from loyal fans, I decided to share the story of my life on written page.”

According to press materials, the book “offers recollections and insight into Mark’s childhood as a military brat, parental bonds, his romantic and marital relationships, travels around the world as an aviator and entertainer, and everything in between.”
