Spearheaded by the band Alabama, “Bama Rising,” takes place in Birmingham, Ala, at the BJCC Arena June 14. Also appearing will be Rodney Atkins, Dierks Bentley, Bo Bice, Luke Bryan, Taylor Hicks, Little Big Town, Montgomery Gentry, David Nail, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker and Ashton Shepherd.
“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.
