1. Taylor Hicks will headline Tailgate For Cure, a charity concert and football watch party, Saturday, October 12, 2013, at Oak Mountain Amphitheatre. Funds raised will benefit the Alabama Institute of Medicine (AIM).

Billed as Birmingham’s biggest tailgate party, Tailgate for Cure will feature multiple big screens showing SEC football throughout the day and a live radio remote from WJOX. Other musical performances will include Birmingham-native Sarah Simmons, who starred in the 2013 season of NBC’s The Voice; Tim Hockenberry, a San Francisco-based artist who was a semi-finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent; and band Within Reason, winner of the 2013 Grammy Awards’ Gig Of A Lifetime and special musical guest on CW’s One Tree Hill. Fans will have opportunities to meet and greet the artists and former athletes, and a kid zone will feature activities for children.

“Tailgate for Cure is going to be fun for music and football fans alike,” said Tory Minus, vice president of AIM. “We want the community to come out and enjoy Birmingham’s biggest tailgate party and, in the process, support research here in Alabama that holds untold potential for cures to numerous diseases and conditions.”

Tailgate for Cure is part of a coast-to-coast fundraising campaign by AIM, which plans to raise at least $10 million before April 2014. Monies raised will be used to fund doctors, researchers and facilities for regenerative medicine in Alabama. Regenerative medicine focuses on treatment that aims to restore the original function of cells and tissues.

“Since our launch in April, AIM has received tremendous support from people across Alabama and beyond. Our top priority is to fund stem cell research that will ease suffering and save lives,” Minus said.

Tailgate for Cure tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 6, 2013, at 10 a.m. CDT. Available through Ticketmaster and LiveNation, tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children (Children ages 10 and under will be admitted free of charge). A family package with two adult tickets and three children’s tickets can be purchased for $70. Various VIP ticket packages are offered at additional price points.

AIM’s mission is to support and advance stem cell research and regenerative medicine under the highest ethical and medical standards for the discovery and development of cures, therapies, diagnostics and research technologies to relieve and provide treatments for people suffering from chronic disease and injury. AIM is a private/public partnership to support regenerative medicine in Alabama, the Southeast, and the United States of America. The talent and technology is in place to foster regenerative medicine into 21st century personalized medicine. When this happens depends on the funding – This is where AIM comes in!

[color=#9300C4]Taylor Hicks takes our Magic City quiz, readies for Tailgate for Cure benefit at Oak Mountain [/color]

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- You can take the musician out of Birmingham, but you can't take Birmingham out of the musician. Or something like that.



All we know is that Taylor Hicks, Las Vegas headliner and former "American Idol" winner, returns to his hometown fairly often for business and pleasure.


This weekend, for example, he'll perform at the Tailgate for Cure, a concert and football watch party at Oak Mountain Amphitheatre. Ticket sales for the Oct. 12 event will benefit the Alabama Institute of Medicine, an organization that supports stem cell research and regenerative medicine.



As the show approaches, we decided to ask Hicks a few key questions that reflect his Biirmingham roots. There are no right or wrong answers to our Magic City quiz -- although some football fans may argue with that. The quiz is meant to give readers an indication of Hicks' preferences and tastes.


The singer, always a good sport, was willing to play along.

Q: Alabama or Auburn?
A: WarTide! I've always wanted state schools to do well and anyone the SEC plays. Big fan of SEC schools.

Q: Bear Bryant or Nick Saban?
A: Both of them. Bear was quite the legend, though.


Q: Pat Dye or Gus Malzahn?
A: If Gus could coach the offense and Pat Dye could coach defense, that would epic.


Q: Bo Jackson or Charles Barkley?
A: Bo Knows Barkley. Chuck is a great friend and was instrumental in booking my headlining show at the Paris Las Vegas. Ha. True story.

Q: I-65 or U.S. 280?
A: Lloyd's is on 280, so I gotta go with 280.

Q: "Sweet Home Alabama" or "My Home's in Alabama"?
A: “My Home’s in Alabama.” I like to play that as my show’s encore, sometimes.

Q: "Forrest Gump" or "My Cousin Vinny"?
A: “Forrest Gump,” by far. Love that movie. I have done a show in Greenbow, Ala., I think. LOL.


Q: Fried chicken or barbecue?
A: Fried chicken. Saw’s Juke Joint has the best barbecue, though.

Q: Biscuits or grits?
A: When I eat biscuits, I also eat grits. Don't get Southern breakfast much.

Q: "Y'all" or "Yes, ma'am"?
A: Y'all have no idea how many times I say, "Yes, ma’am.”

Q: Vulcan Park or Sloss Furnaces?
A: Sloss Furnaces is a really cool music venue.

Q: Highlands or Bottega?
A: Anything Stitt has to be great, right?

Q: Panama City or Lake Martin?
A: Lake Martin and the Chimney Rock swan dive. Then a cold one. Can't beat it.

After the show, he was walking around the area-meeting and still greeting folks-all the while TRYING to get where he could watch the game-

This was an all day charity event with various entertainers throughout the day,
food, fun and football on large screen TV's for those in attendance! The idea was
fine, the entertainers were top notch, but the attendance was sorely lacking,
unfortunately! If they do this next year, perhaps the lessons learned this year will
improve attendance.
