Alabama is ready to hit the stage and perform for their adoring fans on their current tour. Seeing
a group like this in person is something that the most dedicated of music fans will never forget, a chance to experience a
live show put on by a band that they admire and almost feel like they know personally through the music that they love. That's
why seeing a show live is the only way to do it, and you can do just that by securing access to a venue near you for an upcoming
Alabama will hit the stage at BJCC Concert Hall in Birmingham, AL for a two-night event on November 23rd
and 24th. This is the chance for people in the Birmingham area to see one of the best country music groups in the history
of the genre, one that has spent decades entertaining fans all over the country on a regular basis.
While a lot of groups
have focused on the front man-guitarist dynamic over the years, Alabama decided to go in a different direction. A true American
band, they believed everyone was equal and wanted to be musicians that were strictly about the music, and what they achieved
is country legend. A force of nature to behold, Alabama is a cut above all other country acts because where other acts are
plagued by division onstage, Alabama plays as one body, united in their love of country music and the joy they take in sharing
About the Artist
In the late 1960s, cousins Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry discovered they shared
a passion for music. Joined by local veteran musician Jeff Cook, the three started playing clubs and venues on a regular basis.
Sadly, the band struggled to gain much traction, known in their community as a solid country band but failing to garner any
serious attention beyond that. But the band did not lose hope. They knew they had something special, so they quit their day
jobs and focused solely on honing their sound, and that gamble paid off huge dividends.
When Alabama first took the
country music scene by storm in the early 1980s, they split the genre wide open. The band had a classic and strong country
sound, but there was a distinct edge to their twang, and that brought many younger music fans into the country fold. Thanks
to their progressive style of country and the millions of fans they garnered, Alabama recorded 21 consecutive number one hits,
an unprecedented record in music and in country, and the band would double that number over their career to achieve a seemingly
impossible 42 number one hits.
There's something simply incredible about seeing a concert
live and in person that keeps people coming back for more whenever one of their favorite artists comes to town. When you see
a fantastic musical act like this one hit the stage in the same building that you're in, there's a magnetism that occurs that
you can't duplicate anywhere else. Get out to see one of these fantastic shows live and in person so you can experience music
the way it's supposed to be experienced. Nothing compares to seeing it done live, so make sure to check out this current tour
and prepare for a great time.
People have been coming together to enjoy live music in cultures around the world for
a countless number of years. If you think about it, live music is the true foundation of music itself, and really the art's
purest form. It can be an epic experience to see an artist in a huge amphitheater with thousands upon thousands of screaming
fans surrounding you, or it can be an intimate experience in a smaller venue in which you can really connect with everyone
in the building. Either way, seeing a concert live and in person always amounts to more than just listening to music. When
you head out to see a creative artist hit the stage at a venue near you, you're sure to become enveloped by the entire experience
of seeing a musical act that you know and love while surrounded by fellow adoring fans that have at least that one thing in
common. And often times, when it comes to music, that one thing is enough to bring people together.
struggling for many years to make in the music business, Alabama, after undergoing band name changes and other alterations
along the way, finally broke through in 1980 with their hit song "My Home's in Alabama." The track would fittingly become
the band'; signature song and lead to a level of future success that could not have been anticipated.
was the original band name of the group that would eventually become Alabama?
The answer is Wildcountry.
