Alabama is set to kick off 2019 with a headlining tour, celebrating their 50th anniversary.

According to Taste of Country, the country veterans will begin their tour on January 10, 2019. The first show is set to take place in Detroit, Michigan, and will feature additional stops and dates running all the way through September.

Front man, Randy Owen, gave a statement regarding the band’s history. “We never thought playing for tips at the Bowery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, that 50 years later we would still playing arenas, stadiums and festivals.” He went on to add how he and his band-mates, Teddy and Jeff, have been humbled by the support and love from their fans.  “We are finding out that we are playing to three generations of fans who have followed us and our music from day one. The fans are the ones responsible for our continued success on the road and we love them,” Owen said.
