A medical issue concerning lead singer Randy Owen has forced Alabama to postpone the first two dates on their 50th Anniversary Tour, which was set to open tomorrow night (Thursday, January 10th) in Detroit. According to reports, Randy’s back spasms will also prevent the band from taking the stage in Indianapolis on Friday (January 11th).
