Randy Owen, founder of country music super group Alabama, hopes the June Jam will outlast himself and co-founder Teddy Gentry.

In a press release promoting pre-sales for the resurrected concert at the VFW Fairgrounds on June 3, Owen said, “Our wishes are that Fort Payne will take June Jam and it will go on forever. We lost Jeff [Cook] and when me and Teddy are gone, hopefully the city will continue with the June Jam. We want this to continue to help the city, the town, the state, and just help people in general.”
