Alabama welcomed over 18 of their most talented friends to Birmingham last night for the Bama Rising concert, which benefited Alabama tornado recovery. Joining them on stage to raise money and awareness for the storm-ravaged state were Rodney Atkins, Dierks Bentley, Bo Bice, Blind Boys of Alabama, Luke Bryan, the Commodores, Sheryl Crow, Sara Evans, Taylor Hicks, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Montgomery Gentry, David Nail, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker and Ashton Shepherd.

  • The evening’s hosts, Alabama, performed such classic hits as “Tennessee River,” “Dixieland Delight” and “Angels Among Us,” for which they were joined by a local church choir and orchestra.
  • The state of Alabama was well-represented by natives. Leroy, Alabama cutie Ashton Shepherd kicked off her set with “Sounds So Good” and followed it with her current smash “Look It Up.” Samford University alumni Little Big Town were crowd favorites with an acoustic rendition of “Lean Into It.” Birmingham resident Sara Evans won her new hometown’s approval with a performance of the city’s adopted anthem “Stronger.”
  • Brad Paisley brought his pals and the show’s hosts on stage during his performance of “Old Alabama.”
  • The grand finale had the entire line-up joining on stage for “My Home’s in Alabama.”
  • Sprinkled between musical performances were video messages from Whoopi Goldberg and Birmingham native Condoleezza Rice.
