“My hope is that this will bring happiness and help to my fellow citizens in Alabama,” Alabama’s Randy Owen said. “I believe it’s extremely important that we do this benefit, and I want everyone in the state to feel like they are part of it. I hope we all can pull together to help get through the worst natural disaster I’ve ever seen in Alabama. I appreciate my friends in country music, everyone that’s been involved, and anyone that’s helped in any way.”
Tickets go up May 20 at 11 a.m. CST. While ticket proceeds will go to the newly established Bama Rising Fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, another major monetary source is corporate advertising of the event. For more information, visit the Bama Rising website.
