Sold-Out Alabama Concert Helps Homestate Rebuild

Alabama onstage at Bama Rising benefit in June.

Members of Alabama are continuing to help rebuild their home state with another sold-out concert. Proceeds from the Sept. 2 show at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater will benefit the Tuscaloosa Storm Recovery Fund for those affected by the April 27 tornadoes that ravaged the state. The perfectly timed concert is the night before the Alabama Crimson Tide football season opener against Kent State. Joining Alabama will be the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra and EMI recording artist Jon Pardi.

Teddy Gentry reminds that the recovery process is slow. “These families need help for years not weeks…for me, our Tuscaloosa show is just a continuation of helping.”

This is the second fundraiser Alabama has spearheaded for the cause. On June 14 the band headlined a superstar sold-out concert in Birmingham that raised over $2.1 million.

“When we played the Bama Rising concert we had the most incredible cooperation with the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra, their Executive Director and their conductor. I feel very humbled to be part of another concert to hopefully bring about happiness to an area that has lost so much,” says Randy Owen. “My prayers are that the show will be uplifting and help us all love and care more for one another.”
