The "greatest country band of all-time" is coming to the Tristate!  Alabama are bringing their 2023 Roll on 2 North America Tour to the Ford Center in Evansville.

It's been 43 years since Alabama scored their first #1 hit on the Billboard Country chart. It was 1980 when they landed their first chart-topper with "Tennessee River."

That song ignited a streak of 21 consecutive #1 hits that spanned from 1980 to 1987. They had a slight hiccup with the song "Tar Top" (which peaked at #7), but then roared back with six more consecutive #1s.

Alabama continued to land songs inside the Billboard Country Top 10 for twenty years- all the way through 1999. That's when they teamed up with NSYNC and scored their final Top 10 song with "God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You."

Remember this one?

This year, Alabama is heading back out on tour and will be performing many of those #1 songs at the Ford Center in Evansville on Thursday, March 30th at 7pm.
