Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Old Dominion and many other artists will honor Country Music Hall of Famers Alabama during a CMT special announced on Wednesday (January 17).

The show will pay tribute to Alabama, the legendary band formed by a trio of cousins from Fort Payne, Alabama. The band is made up of Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook, who died in November 2022. The band is known for “Song of the South,” “Mountain Music,” “I’m in a Hurry (And Don’t Know Why),” “Tennessee River,” “If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band),” “Born Country,” “Dixieland Delight” and many other songs throughout their decades-long career.

Shelton, Paisley, Evander Holyfield, Aldean, Jamey Johnson, Lionel Richie, Little Big Town, Lorrie Morgan, Luke Bryan, McBride, Old Dominion, Pam Tillis, Riley Green, Sam Hunt, and Vince Gill will take part in the special and cover some of the band’s career-spanning hits, per CMT’s announcement. It’s set to film at the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, and will air later this year. The two-hour TV special will also include stories about Alabama and interviews with Owen and Gentry. CMT has not announced the premiere date of CMT GIANTS: ALABAMA as of publication time on Wednesday.
