It's not often that a band can say that they've had forty-three number one songs. Alabama has achieved this groundbreaking career milestone with number ones like “Mountain Music," “The Closer You Get," “Tennessee River," among forty other chart-toppers.
To celebrate, Alabama giving the fans what they want: a 22-date greatest hits tour, aptly named the Hits Tour. The tour kicks off on March 23 in Grand Prairie, TX, continuing all the way through September, when they close the tour in Brandon, MS on September 8. More dates are set to be announced in the coming months.
Randy Owen, Alabama frontman, is excited to celebrate their career with fans all over North America. In a press release, he shares, “this year’s tour is for the lifelong fans, and also the younger generations just now discovering the music."
Their manager, Tony Conway, is proud of everything the band has accomplished: “The band is having fun, selling tickets, and sounding unbelievable vocally. This tour is about the music of the past 49 years the band’s 43 No. 1 singles. Alabama is still and will always be the greatest country band in American History.“
