Alan Jackson will perform drive-in concerts in Alabama

The Newnan Times-Herald

Alan Jackson will host two “Small Town Drive-In” concerts in Alabama in June.

“The concerts – presented by Pepsi – will bring three decades of hits to music fans in a unique ‘drive-in meets concert’ experience, giving attendees a quality-of-life activity during this current time of isolation and uncertainty,” said organizers on www.alanjackson.com .

The first concert will take place June 5 in Cullman, Alabama on the open-field site of the long-running Rock the South festival. The second concert will be June 6 in Fairhope, Alabama at Oak Hollow Farm. Detailed information regarding each location and event is available at AlanJacksonDriveIn.com .

Alan Jackson’s Small Town Drive-In concerts will hold an audience of 2000 parked vehicles. Both events will be staged in accordance with and while promoting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Alabama state health guidelines regarding social distancing and other practices. Concertgoers will be required to stay with their vehicles and concessions will be provided only via phone orders with delivery to vehicles.

Tickets for Alan Jackson’s Small Town Drive-In concerts go on sale Wednesday, May 27 at 10 a.m. central time at AlanJacksonDriveIn.com .

General admission price per vehicle (up to two passengers) is $99.99; additional passenger tickets may be purchased for $39.99. A limited amount of VIP parking, closest to the stage, is available starting at $199.99.

A portion of all proceeds from each Small Town Drive-In concert will go toward food relief efforts in the respective regions, which have been taxed more than usual due to current events and resulting economic circumstances. More information about the charities can be found at AlanJacksonDriveIn.com .

Cory Farley, a frequent performer at Jackson’s AJ’s Good Time Bar in downtown Nashville, will open the shows.
