CULLMAN, Ala. – County music star Alan Jackson will perform in Cullman Friday night, June 5 as part of his “Small Town Drive-In” concert series. The drive-in event will take place at the Rock the South grounds at 1872 County Road 469.
Jackson will perform a pair of shows next month in Alabama as he launches his first-ever “Small Town Drive-In” concerts, bringing three decades of hits to fans in a unique “drive-in meets concert” experience, giving attendees a quality-of-life activity during this current time of isolation and uncertainty.
In addition to the Cullman show, Jackson will perform June 6 in Fairhope on the grounds of Oak Hollow Farm. Find out more at www.AlanJacksonDriveIn.com.
Jackson’s Small Town Drive-In concerts will find the Country Music Hall of Famer playing
to an audience of approximately 2,000 parked vehicles. Both events will be staged in accordance with and while promoting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 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 go on sale Wednesday, May 27 at 10 a.m. at www.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 concert will go toward local food relief efforts, which have been taxed more than usual due to current events and resulting economic circumstances.
The Cory Farley Band, frequent performers at Jackson’s AJ’s Good Time Bar in downtown
Nashville, will open the shows.
The Tribune contacted the concert logistics team with two big questions asked by readers, and here’s what we found:
What about bathrooms?
There will be bathrooms on-site. Use social distancing while waiting; the bathroom areas will be marked for spacing.
How will they keep people in their cars?
They won’t! A parking grid will be laid out at the venue; you won’t have to stay in your vehicle, but you will have to stay within your assigned space on the grid and at least 6 feet from anyone who did not come in the same vehicle as you. Aisles a minimum of 12 feet in width will allow access to the bathrooms while maintaining social distancing.
