The Alabaster Arts Council is excited to announce Scotty McCreery and Tenille Townes as headliners for Alabaster CityFest, Saturday, June 1, on the front lawn of Thompson High School in Alabaster. In addition to the headliners, the event will feature a regional music lineup and a host of other attractions, including vendors and food trucks. There is FREE admission to all music acts.

“The Arts Council is excited to announce this lineup for Alabaster CityFest,” says Adam Moseley, President of the Alabaster Arts Council. “It gives the community an opportunity to gather for some great food, family fun and incredible music.”

Central State Bank, Coca-Cola and the City of Alabaster are among the sponsors for the event. “The city is a proud sponsor of Alabaster CityFest,” says Jamie Cole, city council member in Alabaster’s Ward 5 and Arts Council vice president. “This is a terrific music lineup, one we are excited to share.”

Scotty McCreery leads the lineup. He has been a household name for nearly half his life, since making history in 2011 as the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album, the Platinum-certified “Clear as Day,” at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. The 30-year-old has sold more than 4 million albums and achieved 5 consecutive No.1 hits: the RIAA Platinum-certified “Damn Strait,” the RIAA Gold certified “You Time,” the RIAA Gold certified “In Between,” the RIAA Platinum certified “This is It,” and the RIAA Triple Platinum certified ‘Five More Minutes.” His current single, “Cab in a Solo,” which McCreery wrote with Frank Rogers and Brent Anderson, is from a forthcoming album due out on May 10. Most recently, McCreery was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry by Garth Brooks; he was inducted Saturday, April 20. He will perform at 9 PM.

Tenille Townes, set to perform at 7 PM, is known for soul-searching songwriting and compassionate storytelling. She has toured with legends like Stevie Nicks, Miranda Lambert, and Reba McEntire. The Canada native discovered her passion for songwriting at age 14, influenced by artists like Patty Griffin and Lori McKenna. She got to perform with Shania Twain at a young age, and signed with Sony Music Nashville after demos caught the music industry’s attention. Her debut album, “The Lemonade Stand,” garnered massive success, featuring two No. 1 singles, “Jersey on the Wall (I’m Just Asking)” and “Somebody’s Daughter.” Her commitment to causes she believes in is incredible, with a recent train trip across Southern Canada—a 3,000-mile trek in which she played 65 shows in 15 days in support of local food banks. Tenille is working on a new indie-rock-influenced sound with recent single “As You Are.”

Alabaster CityFest will open at 9 AM. Local and regional music acts will continue throughout the afternoon, including Michael Warren, Alli Leighann Carruth, Twelve, Cahaba Grass, and Sanchez Tanniehill, culminating with the headlining acts beginning at 7:00 PM. (Afternoon act times TBA, visit for updates).

KidsFest will return with rides and activities for the whole family, all day long. The Cruise-In Car Show returns as well. Vendors and food trucks will be on site throughout the event. “This is a great opportunity for local businesses to be a part of a big event,” says Camille Herron, Arts Council vice president. “And we encourage those attending the event to support our sponsors; we couldn’t make this happen without them.”
