Alabama Reunite for Bama Rising

Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook of Alabama reunited for the Bama Rising fundraising concert in Birmingham, Ala., on Tuesday night (June 14). The band invited numerous country artists, including Rodney Atkins, Brad Paisley and Martina McBride, to perform at the sold-out event. Proceeds will go to recovery efforts from area tornadoes on April 27. “This is not about us. It’s about the people. We’re very, very humbled that the response has been like it is,” Owen said before the show. “I’ve been amazed — and I’m sure that Teddy and Jeff have, too — at the quality and how big these stars are. They’ve come down here to be a part of this. I think the response speaks for itself and the people of Alabama.” Alabama’s farewell tour took place in 2003. View photos from the concert.
