June Jam XVIII is set for June 1st in Fort Payne, Alabama

Late last year, multi-platinum-selling country band Alabama announced June Jam XVIII, set for June 1st in Fort Payne, AL. The iconic group has revealed its lineup of artists scheduled to perform at the historic event. Alabama’s Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry will be joined by special guest performers Old Dominion, Shenandoah, Lee Greenwood, Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry, Mark Wills, Exile, John Berry, Taylor Hicks, The Malpass Brothers, The Castellows, plus a surprise performance by a hitmaking singer-songwriter.

“We are excited and look forward to playing our songs for y’all at this year’s Jam,” says Owen. “We have a true mutual love for our fans, and they always support the band and the June Jam Foundation.”

“When we started the first June Jam in 1982 as a charity concert event, it was attended by over 30,000 fans,” explains Gentry. “At the time, it was the largest country music festival in the United States. Now we are getting ready for our 18th concert. We want to welcome everyone to Fort Payne, Alabama, our hometown. Come have a great time and help others in need!”

June Jam, as in years past, will benefit those in need and disaster relief in and around Alabama. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster and the Alabama Fan Club & Museum at 101 Glenn Blvd SW, Fort Payne, AL 35967.

Additionally, Alabama’s annual Fan Appreciation events will be held in the weeks and days preceding June Jam, including The Miss June Jame Pageant, The Alabama June Jam Parade, Teddy Gentry’s Singing with the Stars Talent Contest, The Jeff & Lisa Cook Foundation Concert, the Alabama June Jam Cornhole Tournament, and more.

June Jam was created by Fort Payne’s sons, Alabama, and brought some of the biggest names in country music together for charity. More than 30,000 fans attended the first June Jam benefit concert in 1982. By 1991, June Jam brought 67,000 fans to Fort Payne, making it one of the biggest country music events in the nation. The June Jam Foundation has raised over $20 million for charities. Previous performers include Garth Brooks, Charlie Daniels, Alan Jackson, The Judds, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Wayne Newton, Dolly Parton, Trisha Yearwood, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, and many more.
