Iconic group’s only 2020 performance will be available for livestreaming
Alabama, the most successful group in the history of country music, has been revealed as the first featured performer for Camping World’s free virtual weekly concert series, Taking the Highways Across America. The band’s upcoming appearance, set for Tuesday, September 15th at 9 pm ET, will be Alabama’s first and only concert performance in 2020.
From Nashville, Tennessee, Alabama will perform many of the hit songs that propelled Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry and Randy Owen into stardom and gifted them careers that have spanned more than 50 years.
“We are happy that we get to play our music live where you can watch for free in the safety of your home, camper or motorhome,” says Alabama frontman Randy Owen. “Thanks to our friends at Camping World for making this possible. We hope and pray that everyone is staying healthy and following the safety rules for the pandemic. The streaming of our live show allows us to come to you in a safe way to once again enjoy live music!”
“One thing Randy, Jeff and I have in common with Camping World is we have been on a camping trip for the last 50 plus years… in our camper buses visiting our fans in cities across North America,” adds Alabama bass player and vocalist Teddy Gentry. “We also live out in the country on top of a mountain and spend time in the woods and on the farm every day. We are thrilled to play this special concert for Camping World and our fans around the world.”
Beginning September 15th and running through November 24th, the series, hosted by country music radio personality Shawn Parr, will livestream on select Tuesdays at 9 pm ET. Fans will be entertained by top recording artists performing both their top hits and new music in the comfort of their own home studio or backyard.
The free concerts will be streamed at campingworld.com/concert and will also be broadcast on the company’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter social media pages. Camping World plans to reveal additional concert performers soon.
