Alabama Reveals Rescheduled Dates for Postponed “50th Anniversary Tour” With Charlie Daniels, Don McLean & More

After cancelling 26 shows in 2019 as frontman Randy Owen dealt with vertigo and migraines, Alabama has revealed more than a dozen rescheduled dates on their 50th Anniversary Tour.

The band will get back on the road this summer and fall with announced stops in Nashville, Indianapolis, Detroit and more. A number of special guests will perform at select dates, including The Charlie Daniels Band, The Beach Boys, John Michael Montgomery, Don McLean and Restless Heart. Tickets are on sale now.

Alabama was celebrating a half-century of making music with their 50th Anniversary Tour in 2019, before postponing the trek about halfway through.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
