Earlier this month, country music supergroup Alabama took the stage at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium for back-to-back sold out shows. One of the night included several special guests all who can be found on the group's newly released Alabama & Friends album for a TV taping.
The one-hour concert event titled "Alabama & Friends" will air on the GAC network next week (Wednesday, November 27) at9:00PM ET. The special will included all of the artists on the chart-topping album, delivering the songs covered on the project like Jason Aldean on "Tennessee River," Luke Bryan on "Love in the First Degree," Florida Georgia Line on "I'm In a Hurry (And Don't Know Why)," Trisha Yearwood on "Forever's As Far As I'll Go," Jamey Johnson on "My Home's in Alabama" and Eli Young Band on "The Closer You Get." Alabama will also perform "All American," one of two new tracks on the tribute album.
"For me, they were the Beatles," Jason Aldean says of the iconic group. "Through Randy's voice, the songs, his charisma on stage, he had people in the palm of his hand. Watching the reaction those guys got from the crowd was part of the reason I wanted to be an entertainer."
"They were just perfectly poetic for a southern person," adds Luke Bryan. "They may be big stars but they felt like the guys down the street. They knew who their audience was and spoke right to them."
