Alabama Book New Dates for Makeup Nashville Show on 50th Anniversary Tour
Alabama have locked in not one, but two new shows in Nashville to make up for the one they postponed on their 50th Anniversary Tour.
The legendary group of Randy Owen, Jeff Cook and Teddy Gentry moved the original show, which was scheduled for this month, to 2020, with an additional date added due to a high demand for tickets. The "Dixieland Delight" singers will take the stage at Bridgestone Arena on July 17 and 18, 2020, with Charlie Daniels still scheduled to join them for both shows.
Here's What Alabama Says About Randy Owen's Health:
The legendary country group has been traveling across the U.S. and Canada on the 50th Anniversary Tour throughout 2019, performing beloved hits like "Mountain Music," "If You're Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)," "Tennessee River" and more. The tour features a total of 50 dates, but the band had to reschedule several dates due to frontman Owen's bouts with migraines and vertigo. The Nashville show was originally slated for Nov. 20.
The Grammy-winning group was recently inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame's Class of 2019, where they were also awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.
"To be in the Musicians Hall of Fame along with so many of my peers is one of the greatest honors we have ever received," Gentry said in a press releasing announcing the news.
"Getting the first Lifetime Achievement Award and going in the Musicians Hall of Fame is very humbling. I am thankful to be a musician, a singer, a songwriter and for being able to make a living through touring and recording for the last 50 years," Owen added.
Tickets for the July 18 in Nashville show go on sale Friday (Nov. 22) at 11AM ET.
