Country Superstars ALABAMA to Kick Off Nationwide Free Concert Series With Virtual Concert Streaming Live on Tuesday, September 15th at 8pm CST
Key Networks, a next generation syndication company serving the radio industry, announces that Country radio personality Shawn Parr, of the nationally syndicated weekday show, Shawn Parr’s Across the Country, will host the Camping World Concert Series, “Taking the Highways Across America”. The star-studded 10-week free virtual concert series kicks off Tuesday, September 15, 2020, with its first concert, featuring Country super-group ALABAMA. The virtual concert will stream live at 8:00pm CST at: www.CampingWorld.com/Concert.
ALABAMA, with original members Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook, is the band that changed everything. They reeled off 21 straight #1 singles, a record that will probably never be equaled in any genre. They brought youthful energy, sex appeal and a rocking edge that broadened country's audience and opened the door to self-contained bands from then on, and they undertook a journey that led, 73 million albums later, to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Camping World Concert Series hosted by Shawn Parr will feature Country music’s biggest stars, including:
- Tuesday, Sept. 15 – Alabama
- Tuesday, Sept. 22 – Martina McBride
- Tuesday, Sept. 29 – Chris Young
- Tuesday, Oct. 6 – Ricky Skaggs and Steven Curtis Chapman

The free concerts will be streamed at CampingWorld.com and will also be broadcast on the company’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter social media pages.
