Where in the Alabama Lien Laws is it stated that “No Lien Clauses” are unenforceable?

I am looking for verification that Alabama Lien laws do not enforce “No Lien Clauses” in subcontracts.

In Alabama there is no specific statutory prohibition on advance lien waivers as long as both parties have clear intentions to waive. This means that contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers must be very careful in Alabama when signing construction contracts. If the language is explicit and clear enough, it’s possible that lien rights can be waived early, way before the contractor or supplier knows whether a payment problem might arise.
