Area band gets a chance to set the stage for the legendary country band, after placing 4th in a national contest.

Whiskey Trail hit facebook with the news they were going to be the opening act and will only be on stage the way they started, with a guitar and the two of them. Heidi and Jake said, "Feeling extremely blessed to say that we got a call yesterday asking if we would open up for Alabama Our first stadium concert & we get to share our talents the way we did when we first started. Us & a guitar! Dreams really do come true."

Heidi called me directly to tell me the good news as soon as she could talk about it. In a year, they have come a long way from coming to the station to talk about their first opening gig and to talk about their music.

Their guitarist Jim Holbeck hit facebook to add his support to the great news. Saying Thank you Heidi Pack and Jake Birdseye for bringing me on your adventures!
