One of the most successful and influential groups in country music ALABAMA is gearing up for a performance they won’t soon forget at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. While the icons have graced many notable stages throughout their 40-year career, they have never performed a full concert from the Mother Church of the Grand Ole Opry, that is until November 3 and 4.
The back-to-back shows are both sold out, with the first night reaching capacity within 30 minutes of going on sale. The concerts will have the group performing some of their biggest hits including “Tennessee River, “Mountain Music,” “My Home’s In Alabama,” “Song of the South,” “If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)” and so many more.
“Performing at the Ryman is like a culmination of the dreams and ambitions of my late father, who taught me to play the guitar and who encouraged the deep down love for harmony and music,” says lead vocalist, Randy Owen. “The only thing that would make it sweeter, would be bringing him up on stage, at the Ryman, to play and sing a song with him.”
To make the shows even more special, ALABAMA will be capturing some of their songs on film for an upcoming television special that will include several special surprise guests found on their recent chart-topping ALABAMA & Friends tribute album which hit stores this summer.
There are very few groups in any genre of music that have achieved the level of success earned by ALABAMA throughout their record-breaking career. Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook have been changing the face of music for over four decades, and take pride in the path they have carved out as they continue to be one of the most respected groups in all of music.
ALABAMA has achieved 43 No. 1 hits and earned more than 150 industry awards, including two Grammy’s and an induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Most recently, ALABAMA embarked on their Back to the Bowery Tour, celebrating the past 40 years of music history. The journey has the group reuniting to make music after nearly a decade away from the country music scene.
The tour will wrap in their homestate of Alabama on November 23 and 24 before heading home to spend time with their families for the holidays. For more news and a complete list of remaining tour dates visit www.thealabamaband.com
