    C Spire Concert Series presents Alabama Southern Drawl Tour with special guest The Charlie Daniels Band
    Posted in: Music/Art

    ALABAMA is the band that changed everything. They brought country music to the mainstream and from side stage to the main Stage. ALABAMA introduced rock style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics and sounds to the country audience. "We were renegades in sneakers and t-shirts," says Teddy. "We had long hair and played loud and some of the country folks resisted us for a while. But then of course they did accept us and after that, our success made it lots easier for other bands to try it in country music," concluded Gentry. Bands benefitting from that breakthrough include Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line and Eli Young Band.

    C Spire Concert Series presents: Brantley Gilbert with special guests Tyler Farr & Luke Combs
    Posted in: Music/Art

    Although it's tempting to call Brantley Gilbert a country artist -- he certainly embraces the outlaw country side of things. Gilbert was born in the small town of Jefferson, Georgia, just outside of Athens. He grew up hearing country music, but he also listened to a lot of Athens rock bands like R.E.M. and the B-52's, plus the swaggering Southern rock of bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd; at his best, Gilbert blends all of these various strains together in his music. General admission: $59.75\Reserved seats: $59.75 - $34.75 - $24.75
