Rock the South kicks off in Cullman!

Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama on June 19, 2015:

ROCK THE SOUTH - Terri Brewer and Mickey Ferguson joined us live from Heritage Park this morning in Cullman where crews set up for Rock the South. Rock The South -- the region's fastest growing music festival -- is this weekend at Heritage Park in Cullman! This year's performers include Alan Jackson, Brantley Gilbert, Sara Evans, Blackberry Smoke, Eric Paslay, Jon Pardi, Travis Tritt, Tyler Farr, Corey Smith, Chris Weaver Band, Big Smo, Dee Jay Silver, Andrew Leahey & The Homestead, and Mary Sarah and Southern Halo. Because "Rock The South" was borne of the spirit of a recovering community following 2011's EF-4 and EF-5 tornadoes, the fourth annual festival has chosen to honor local heroes who embody a drive to better their society.
