Rosin up your bow for a night of mountain music.

Country music all-timers Alabama are coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa, and they're bringing as guests the Charlie Daniels Band. The show, part of Alabama's Southern Drawl Tour, hits Amalie Arena on May 28. Tickets are $26 and up, and they go on sale Friday. Click here for details.

Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook are among the most successful country artists in history, having sold tens of millions of records thanks to huge hits like Song of the South, Mountain Music, Love in the First Degree, Dixieland Delight and If You're Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band). And of course, what country fiddler doesn't count Charlie Daniels as an influence?

Given the success of Dolly Parton's concert last fall at Amalie Arena, another shot of classic country might be just the thing we need this spring.
