The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will delve into the personal stories and significant events of one of the most popular bands in America with Alabama: Born Country. The exhibition will open Aug. 25, 2016, and run through June 2017. It will feature musical instruments, performance clothing, awards, childhood mementos, tour memorabilia, photographs and more.
In support of their exhibit, Alabama, featuring Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook, will perform live in the CMA Theater on Wednesday, July 6 for the museum’s exclusive member concert, The Big Gig. For more information on Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum membership and this exclusive concert visit www.countrymusichalloffame.org.
The exhibit will spotlight Alabama’s humanitarian efforts. The group’s long-running June Jam in Fort Payne, Ala., raised millions of dollars for local charities, and their support of St. Jude Children’s Hospital inspired other country artists to follow suit.
Alabama will be inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame on Thursday, May 26 at 1:00 p.m. in Walk of Fame Park in Nashville, Tennessee. The Music City Walk of Fame on Nashville’s Music Mile is a landmark tribute to those from all genres of music who have contributed to the world through song or other industry collaboration and made a significant contribution to the music industry with connection to Music City.
