Alabama is the band that changed everything by bringing Country music to the mainstream. They are the band that introduced rock-style guitars, lights, and pyrotechnics to the Country audience and they are bringing their “Southern Drawl Tour” to The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, November 11, 2017.
The story of Alabama is a classic American tale of rags to riches. From humble beginnings picking cotton in the fields of Fort Payne, Alabama, Randy, Jeff and Teddy became international stars that went on to sell 73 million albums while changing the face and sound of Country music.
In 1980 the band broke through with their first Top 20 hit “My Home’s In Alabama.” What followed was a string of hits like “Mountain Music,” “Born Country,” “Forever’s As Far As I’ll Go,” “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” and “If You’re Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band),” a run of success that is legendary in the history of Country music.
Alabama released a new studio album called Southern Drawl in 2015 which landed them on the covers of USA Today, People Magazine, Rolling Stone and Country Weekly. Adding a new chapter to an already iconic legacy can be a little tricky, but the album skillfully walks the line between the fresh and familiar, featuring a potent collection of songs for a new generation of Alabama lovers while also giving longtime fans plenty of reasons to rejoice.
Critics and fans alike continue to shower Alabama with accolades. They were honored with the ACM Career Achievement Award at the Ryman Auditorium in 2016 and were awarded “Album Of The Year” at the 2015 Dove Awards for Angels Among Us. 40 years after their founding, Alabama is still going strong and they continue to roll on.
Tickets for the 8pm Alabama performance on Saturday, November 11, 2017 go on sale Friday, August 4th for $109, $89, $69 and $49 at the Fantasy Springs
