Three of Nashville's most talented performers bring a little taste of Music City to Alex City when they perform "Country & Christmas". Join Grammy-award winners Linda Davis, Lang Scott (The Scott Family) and Cheryl White (The Whites) as they usher in the Christmas season with a whole lot of down home appeal, hit songs and holiday favorites.
Davis' unique ability to interpret a song has made her one of Nashville's favorite vocalists and has won multiple awards throughout her career. She is probably best known for her Grammy-winning duet with Reba McEntire called "Does He Love You".
Scott has made multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances, served as guitarist and background vocalist for Reba McEntire, and written songs for numerous prominent recording artists. He and Davis have been married since 1984 and are the parents of Hillary and Rylee Scott. Hillary Scott is the female singer in the supergroup Lady Antebellum.
White is truly a part of Country and Bluegrass Music Royalty and a top-notch instrumentalist on the upright bass. As a 30-year member of the Grand Ole Opry, Cheryl has sung on countless albums and won Grammy's for The White's recording of "Keep On The Sunnyside" on the Oh Brother, Where Art Thou movie soundtrack.
Audiences can expect to hear some familiar tunes as well as the seasonal classics that will warm their hearts and leave them on their feet and in the holiday mood.
Join us as we light up the night, when Alexander City’s Annual Hometown Christmas Parade presented by Lake Martin Memorials winds its way through the streets of Alexander City the first Monday of December. Spectators are invited to line the parade route to watch bands and dancers perform, see the festively decorated floats, and wait for the much anticipated arrival of Jolly Old St. Nick himself.
Parade Route: The parade will line up on Comer Street. It will proceed down Cherokee towards Benjamin Russell High School. Once past BRHS, the parade will turn up Church Street and head for the round-a-bout. Once in the round-a-bout, the parade will turn east onto AL 22 (Tallapoosa Street) and proceed to the bottom of the hill to the official end of the parade.
This year's parade theme is Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.
Yes, the Jolly Elf will be on the Green Stage at Russell Crossroads during the, Russell Lands On Lake Martin Christmas at Crossroads and Holiday Bazaar!

Our family-style dinner that is slightly different from a normal dinner service, with only one seating time. Doors open for cocktails and mingling at 6:00 pm with food served at 6:30 pm. We will limit these dinners to 80 guests, seated at ten 8-person tables. Our Front of House Manager and Sommelier, Daniel Goslin, will have a small selection of wines chosen exclusively for each dinner, with Scott Burlingame mixing up a tasty seasonal cocktail as well. The cost is $50++ per person (not to include alcohol), and $15++ per person for children under 12. Since family-style dinners are not like a normal dinner service, there will be no traditional dinner menu—instead, the menu will be crafted to include shareable dishes that Chef Rob has hand-selected to make for one delicious dinner.
