    Born of a spirit of community following 2011's EF-4 and EF-5 tornadoes that devastated the greater Birmingham/Huntsville, Alabama areas, Rock the South has become the fastest growing music festival in the South, over doubling its attendance in just two years.

    Nice! Weather can't keep us down!

    We rise, we fall, we rock.

    Celebrating its fourth year in Cullman, Alabama, midway between Birmingham and Huntsville, the June 19 and 20 event lineup features Alan Jackson, Brantley Gilbert, Sara Evans, Blackberry Smoke, Eric Paslay, Jon Pardi, Travis Tritt, Tyler Farr, Corey Smith, Chris Weaver Band, Big Smo, Downsouth and Dee Jay Silver.

    To date, Rock the South has given back over $150,000 to local charities. With Pepsi as this year's title sponsor, it will continue to aid local organizations, grow economic development and provide a unique festival experience.

    Awesome and awesome-r.

    "Every year this event serves as a reminder that together we can overcome and rebuild and that we're doing it together," says artist Sara Evans, wife of co-founder Jay Barker. "Seeing everyone come together on an annual basis shows just how strong the people of this region are. Having the support of artists like Alan Jackson and Brantley Gilbert, and Pepsi as a title sponsor this year, are incredible additions to Rock the South and to our community."
