Country singer Alan Jackson is coming to Cullman County. Fans tired of rocking the jukebox while social distancing will have the opportunity to see Jackson live at a drive-in concert on Friday, June 5.
Jackson is doing a series of drive-in concerts and Cullman is the first stop on the tour. It will be held at the location where Rock the South is typically held.
“We’re really excited,” said Mayor Woody Jacobs. “It’s an old-fashioned drive-in movie theater kind of thing.” Jacobs said the concert will be a morale booster for the residents who have been practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 health crisis.
Jacobs said the venue will hold about 2,000 vehicles. People are being asked to follow social distancing guidelines during the concert.
Concertgoers will be required to stay with their vehicles, and concessions will be provided only via phone orders with delivery to vehicles.
“Bring a lawn chair and throw it in the back of the pickup truck,” said Jacobs.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday morning and are available through alanjackson.com/drivein.
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.
The Cory Farley, frequent performer at Jackson’s AJ’s Good Time Bar in downtown Nashville, will open the shows.
