Alabama is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a band with a brand-new tour. The country music legends have announced a total of 30 dates for 2019 with plans to announce additional stops soon. Front man Randy Owen reveals he and the rest of the band “are humbled at the amount of fans that are coming out to see us.” “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,” Randy says.

“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.” The 50th anniversary trek kicks off January 10 in Detriot and continues with stops in Atlantic City, New Orleans, Myrtle Beach and many more.
