Citing the statement, AL.com reports Alabama has added several bands to the line-up including the Charlie Daniels Band, Jamey Johnson and Riley Green.

    The statement says this concert is the only time Alabama will be performing in the state this year. Alabama lead singer Randy Owen says the storm did a "tremendous amount of damage" to his alma mater and the band wants to do its part to help.

    Tickets go on sale Tuesday and start at $25.
