Jackson postpones Alabama shows due to weather issues
Wednesday, June 3, 2020
– Alan Jackson's "Small Town Drive-In" concerts planned for this week in Alabama will be rescheduled due to potential tropical weather issues.
The shows at drive-in movie theatres in Cullman and Fairhope, Ala. are being rescheduled for next week due to the weekend threat of tropical weather on the Gulf Coast.
Jackson's June 5 performance in Cullman will now take place next Friday, June 12. His Fairhope (Mobile area) concert will be Saturday, June 13.
"With potential tropical storm conditions in the forecast for the Alabama coast on Saturday, organizers determined it's in the best interest of safety for fans and event staff that the Fairhope show be rescheduled," Jackson's website said. "Given the unique nature of the staging and set up for these events, the Cullman concert is being rescheduled in conjunction with this decision. All purchased tickets will be honored at the rescheduled dates."
The concerts can accommodate approximately 2,000 cars per show, which is being held following Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. Concert goers can order food at the shows, which would be brought to their cars.

Alan Jackson makes his statement crystal clear with the title - "The Bluegrass Album." The traditional country singer has "gone bluegrass," although the idea of a bluegrass disc should not come off as all that far fetched. Yes, there's no pedal steel here, but the sounds, subject and voice are not very different from a typical AJ disc.
And this is not the first time that Jackson has veered off the straight and narrow path as his gospel albums indicated. ...
