HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Hospital Foundation announced today that its 33rd annual Huntsville Classic, featuring Jake Owen, will be the opening concert in Huntsville’s new Orion Amphitheater. The history-making show is set to take place Saturday, May 7, 2022, at the brand-new venue.
Country superstar Jake Owen will perform acoustically for an anticipated sell-out crowd at this year’s Huntsville Classic fundraiser. The news comes just one week after the announcement of the amphitheater’s new name, which garnered national attention.
"Hosting the Huntsville Classic as The Orion Amphitheater's inaugural event is meaningful in a multitude of ways," said Ryan Murphy, The Orion Amphitheater General Manager. "Huntsville Hospital Foundation has done immeasurable work in our community. We're thrilled that the Foundation and their guests will be among the first to experience The Orion."
Jake Owen has eight No. 1 songs, plus numerous chart-topping albums and multi-platinum hits to his name. Some fan favorites include Barefoot Blue Jean Night, Beachin’, Alone With You, and The One That Got Away. Those and more will be performed May 7, all in support of a great cause.
The event benefits Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. Proceeds will fund specialized pediatric services at the not-for-profit hospital, which serves children from across our growing region.
“By supporting the 2022 Huntsville Classic, you can celebrate the work of our health care heroes over these last few years, while contributing to the future of our children’s health care in this dynamic community. Proceeds from this inaugural show in the Orion Amphitheater stay local,” said Huntsville Hospital Foundation President Sarah Savage-Jones. “Huntsville Hospital cares for our entire region, and your support ensures we can continue to offer world-class facilities, technology and programs. Tickets not only give you access to a historic event, it will also make a difference for the lives of patients and families from across North Alabama.”
