Unlike 40 years ago, the band won’t be playing for just tips this time.
“I’m so excited to celebrate 40 years since our first show at The Bowery,” Alabama’s Randy Owen said. “We still love one another, have played music together all these years, and are blessed to still be around. Most importantly, we are ever grateful for the fans, many having been with us since we used to play for tips, so to be able to go back out and play for them will make this a very special year.”
