WINNIPEG, January 29, 2018 – Country legends ALABAMA are bringing their Southern Drawl Tour to Bell MTS Place this summer.

ALABAMA is the band that changed everything. They brought country music to the mainstream and from side stage to the main stage. ALABAMA introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics and sounds to the country audience. In the 40 years cousins Randy, Jeff and Teddy have been together, the group has sold over 75 million records and have charted 43 #1 singles including such hits as “I’m In A Hurry,” “Dixieland Delight,” “Mountain Music” and “Old Alabama” with Brad Paisley, a record that will likely never be surpassed in any genre.
They have won over 178 CMA Awards, Grammy Awards, ACM Awards and counting. They’ve earned 21 Gold ®, Platinum ® and Multi-Platinum ® albums and were named the RIAA’s Country Group of the Century. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and have a start on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They are also world-class philanthropists who have raised over $250 million for charity.
But the boys from Fort Payne are not content to rest on past glories. To much acclaim, the band released a new studio album SOUTHERN DRAWL in 2015, landing on the cover of USA Today, in People Magazine, Rolling Stone and Country Weekly. Adding a new chapter to an already iconic legacy can be a little tricky, but the album skillfully walks the line between the fresh and familiar, featuring a potent collection of songs for a new generation of Alabama lovers while also giving longtime fans plenty of reasons to rejoice.
Joining ALABAMA is Canadian legend and blue collar hero Charlie Major. Rising to the forefront of the Canadian music scene in the early to mid-nineties, Charlie had a heyday at radio as he became the first Canadian artist in history to score six BDS #1 hits off his debut album. Known for such hits as “(I Do It) For The Money,” “It Can’t Happen To Me” and “I’m Going To Drive You Out Of My Mind.”
