One of the most influential acts of the last half-century in country music, Alabama will reach that same milestone with their 50th Anniversary Tour, a trek that will keep the trio on the road throughout the new year. Joining the Country Music Hall of Fame members on select dates are Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence, Restless Heart, Exile, Charlie Daniels Band, the Marshall Tucker Band and the Oak Ridge Boys. Formed in 1969 in Fort Payne, Alabama, the group played the nearby (now defunct) Canyon Land amusement park on weekends, before making their way to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where they built up their fan base at a bar called the Bowery. Alabama — made up of Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook — would go on to dominate country music in the Seventies and Eighties, one of the few bands to do so at the time, while also crossing over into the pop charts. They remain one of the most awarded groups in history and their explosive, rock-fueled stage shows became a blueprint for future country superstars from Garth Brooks to Luke Bryan and beyond. “We never thought playing for tips at the Bowery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, that 50 years later we would still playing arenas, stadiums and festivals,” says Owen in a statement. “Teddy, Jeff and I are humbled at the amount of fans that are coming out to see us. We are finding out that we are playing to three generations of fans who have followed us and our music from day one. The fans are the ones responsible for our continued success on the road and we love them.” Alabama’s 50th Anniversary Tour kicks off January 10th at Detroit’s Fox Theatre. More tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
