They have scored 43 No. 1 singles, including a record 21 in a row – a feat that likely will never be topped – and now legendary country music band Alabama brings their tour to BB&T Arena at Northern Kentucky University on Friday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m.
From the cotton farms of Fort Payne, Alabama to the heights of the music industry, Alabama has sold 73 million albums worldwide while changing the face and sound of country music. Band members and cousins Randy, Jeff, and Teddy introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics and sounds to the country audience, inspiring many of today’s brightest country stars including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, as well as pop and rock stars from Ed Sheeran to Jon Bon Jovi.
Alabama’s reach goes far beyond their impact on other artists; their music is timeless and can be heard today as a part of every cover band’s set list in nearly every college town in America. They have won over 178 Country Music Association, Grammy and Academy of Country Music awards… and counting. They’ve earned 21 Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum albums and were named the RIAA's “Country Group of the Century.” They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They are also world-class philanthropists who have raised more than $250 million for charity.
Alabama was honored with the ACM Career Achievement Award at the Ryman Auditorium in the fall of 2015 and were named “Album of the Year” at the 2015 Dove Awards for Angels Among Us: Hymns & Gospel Favorites.
Montgomery Gentry will be joining Alabama on May 11th at the BB&T Arena. In honor of Troy Gentry and their nearly two decades worth of chart-topping Country music, fans can expect to hear their greatest hits mixed with anticipated HERE’S TO YOU songs live.
