Nashville, Tenn. (December 29, 2020) — COVID-19 has halted most all live concerts across the country but that isn’t stopping iconic country group ALABAMA from bringing music to its fans this New Year’s Eve.
Today, ALABAMA revealed that it is again teaming with Camping World® for a virtual concert, set to stream live this Thursday, December 31 at 8 p.m. / CT. The multi-platinum selling Country Music Hall of Fame band will help ring in 2021 with a special performance featuring the ALABAMA tunes fans have adored for more than five decades.
Upon announcing the New Year’s Eve concert, ALABAMA founding members Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry and Randy Owen released the following joint statement:
“What better way to start the New Year than to have a free concert on New Year’s Eve for our fans around the world? We are pleased that Marcus Lemonis and our friends at Camping World are presenting this special performance from Nashville, Tennessee. We cannot wait to get back on tour soon, and want to see you in-person. Sit back, relax, crank up the sound and ‘ROLL ON’ into 2021. Wishing you a very happy New Year.” -Randy, Teddy & Jeff
ALABAMA’s upcoming New Year’s Eve concert is one of several special performances to be featured by Camping World®‘s The Ultimate RV Show – National Tour. The weekly livestream performance series is hosted by country music radio personality Shawn Parr.
Virtual concertgoers can stream the performance live this New Year’s Eve night at ultimatervshow.com.
It’s been more than 50 years since Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry and Randy Owen left the cotton farms of Fort Payne, Alabama to spend the summer playing music in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina bar called The Bowery. It’s a classic American tale of rags to riches. From humble beginnings picking cotton in the fields to international stars, ALABAMA went on to sell 80 million albums and change the face and sound of country music. Quality songs that have become the soundtrack for American life are the foundation for ALABAMA’s stellar career. The group introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics and sounds to the country audience that has inspired many of today’s brightest country stars including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. While their music continues to stand the test of time, their numbers and stats are beyond compare. Five decades since starting the band, ALABAMA has charted 43 #1 singles, including 21 #1 singles in a row, and have won dozens of CMA, GRAMMY®, and ACM Awards. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Musicians Hall of Fame and have their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, they are world-class philanthropists who have raised millions of dollars for various charities.
