In Florence, inductees into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame will be honored
FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – Award-winning musicians from around the country will travel to Florence in a few weeks to celebrate the Class of 2023 inductees into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame (AMHOF).
The event will take place on March 23 at the Marriot Shoals Conference Center located inside the Marriot Shoals Hotel & Spa.
The event will feature Earl “Piano” Montgomery, “Three on a String,” LeBlanc and Carr (Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr), Dr. Henry Panion III, Jeanne Pruett, and Jim McBride.
Special guests include multiple Grammy winners as well as American Idol winner Taylor Hicks. Performers include Randy Owen, William Lee Golden, Taylor Hicks, Lenny LeBlanc, Wade Hayes, Chris Tompkins, Reuben Studdard, Gary Nichols, Gary Baker, Three on a String, Cadence Baker and Rhonda Vincent.
According to the organizers, this year’s event will be different from previous years. They decided to rearrange the ballroom to provide multiple rows of theater seats, meaning more people could attend the show, which has sold out in recent years.
“People called us and were disappointed when the show sold out,” AMHOF executive director Sandra Burroughs said in a statement. “Great Alabama-made music belongs to everyone, so we redesigned the layout to be more inclusive.”
Tickets for this year’s event range from $75 to $200. Groups can also purchase a table, and they come with special VIP packages that include a pre-event “meet and greet” cocktail reception with invitees and performers.
