Bama Rising

Two months ago today on April 27, 2011 Alabama was hit hard with a tornado outbreak. Soon after it happened Bama Rising was founded. On June 14 they put together a benefit concert. My niece and I went and it was wonderful. Here are some pictures from the concert.

It was an amazing night and a awesome line up. The musicians were The Blind Boys of Alabama, Alabama, Luke Bryan, Taylor Hicks, Bo Bice, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Ashton Shepherd, Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Sheryl Crow, Montgomery Gentry, Little Big Town,Rodney Atkins, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, David Nail, the Commadores, and Brad Paisley. Also there was Dale Jr, Jay Barker, Kirk Herbstreit, and Paul Finebaum. The concert started at 7:30 and ended around 1:00 and it was on a Tuesday night. I am so glad that I took off work on Wednesday. I don't think I would have been able to make it. The best part of the night was when Brad Paisley and Alabama sang "Old Alabama" together. It was amazing. I will try to post the video soon.
