Alabama With Martina McBride

Alabama With Martina McBride

The third time is the charm . . . hopefully.

Alabama is rolling on with two newly announced stops in Nashville in 2021 as part of their delayed 50th Anniversary Tour. The trio is set to perform at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on July 2 and July 3 with special guest Martina McBride.

After postponing more than 25 shows on their 50th Anniversary Tour in 2019 as frontman Randy Owen dealt with vertigo and migraines, Alabama planned to resume their tour in 2020, however, the COVID-19 pandemic put a kibosh on their plans. Alabama’s show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena was originally scheduled for Nov. 20, 2019. It was rescheduled for July 17, 2020, with an additional date set for July 18, 2020. Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels, who died on July 6, was slated to join Alabama at both Nashville shows.

Now, Martina McBride will join Alabama for their two-night Nashville stint. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming months. Tickets are on sale now.
