Country music stars Alan Jackson and Lee Ann Womack are coming to the Charleston Civic Center on Sept. 22.

The show is part of Jackson’s “Honky Tonk Highway Tour,” which follows the recent release of the singer/songwriter’s latest record “Angels and Alcohol,” as well as a recently released box set.

Jackson, a two-time Grammy Award winner and a 15-time Country Music Association award winner, has earned dozens of country hits over a career spanning nearly 30 years. These include “Here in The Real World,” “Gone Country,” and “Good Time.”

This show is Jackson’s first appearance in Charleston since 2010. The country singer donated the profits from that performance to the Montcoal Mining Disaster Fund, which went to the families of the miners killed in the Upper Big Branch Mine in Raleigh County.

Womack is best known for her hit, “I Hope You Dance,” which earned the singer a Grammy Award for Best Country Song, a CMA award and several other honors. She had other hits, including “Last Call,” “Ashes by Now,” and “You’ve Got to Talk to Me.”

Womack’s last performance in Charleston was in 1997, though she did perform on a “Mountain Stage” show in Morgantown in 2015.

Tickets for the concert will be $49.50 and $59.50.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster or at 800-745-3000.
