All Tickets Will Be Honored
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) Country music superstar Alan Jackson’s “Small Town Drive-In” concerts – planned for this week in Cullman, AL and Fairhope, AL – are being rescheduled for next week due to the weekend threat of tropical weather on the Gulf Coast.
Jackson’s June 5 performance in Cullman will now take place next Friday, June 12. His Fairhope (Mobile area) concert will be held Saturday, June 13.
With potential tropical storm conditions in the forecast for the Alabama coast on Saturday, organizers determined it’s in the best interest of safety for fans and event staff that the Fairhope show be rescheduled.
