Rock the South is this weekend in Cullman.

Rock the South has been held since 2012 when it was created as a celebration of the Cullman area’s recovery from the EF4 tornado that struck the region in 2011. Originally, it was only supposed to occur that year, but Rock the South continued to expand.

From then on, the event has hosted popular country music stars such as Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bently, Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson, Thomas Rhett and Eric Church.
