If you're gonna play in Cheyenne, you gotta have a fiddle in the band. Country music legends Alabama took the CFD stage on Thursday night, delivering a hit filled, career spanning show to the rowdy crowd.

Montgomery Gentry got the party started with a solid set, which included "My Town", 'Hillbilly Shoes", "If You Ever Stop Loving Me”, “Lucky Man”, “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll with Me.”  One day after their 'not safe for work', anti-government twitter rant made headlines, the band was also on their best behavior between the songs too.

After a short intermission, Alabama came on with a long list of anthems from their Hall of Fame career, highlighted by "If You're Gonna Play in Texas", "Song of the South", "Born Country", "Roll On" and "High Cotton". The hits kept on coming. By the time they capped the evening with a rousing rendition of "Mountain Music", the clock had struck 11:30 p.m. and the weary crowd headed for the gates.
