Has it really been 26 years?
Alabama has decided to revive June Jam, the group’s one-day music festival in their hometown of Fort Payne, AL. They made the announcement on Instagram. See their post here. It’s been 26 years since the last June Jam. This year’s event will be held on June 3rd at the VRW Fairgrounds with Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry closing out the show as headliners. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Our wishes are that Fort Payne will take June Jam and it will go on forever. We lost Jeff (Cook) and when me and Teddy are gone, hopefully, the city will continue with the June Jam. We want this to continue to help the city, the town, the state, and just help people in general.” – Randy Owen
In the days leading up to June Jam, the group has plans for Alabama Fan Appreciation events including a Celebration of Life for Jeff Cook, who died in November after a battle with Parkinson’s disease, and a brunch honoring the Jeff & Lisa Cook Foundation which will be held at the Cook Castle at Randy’s farm.
Tickets to June Jam are available beginning Wednesday, March 1st at 11 a.m. ET via Ticketmaster.
