About Country Crossing
THE HEART OF COUNTRY
Country Crossing is a one-of-a-kind master-planned entertainment destination resort located in Dothan, Alabama. It has been designed to create lasting family memories and to bring the spirit of music to the community and its visitors.
The official groundbreaking was held on October 27, 2008 and construction is under way. Several venues are scheduled to open in 2009.
Country Crossing will have a countrified retail and dining entertainment district home to unique dinner-music theaters, old time western saloons, restaurants, live music, a recording studio, and themed retail shops. Country Crossing will also offer a host of hospitality options including the George Jones Possum Holler Bed & Breakfast. Country Crossing will showcase year-round entertainment with multi-platinum selling artists performing weekly at its various venues.
Located in Dothan, Alabama Country Crossing is strategically situated within a 300 mile radius of approximately 26.8 million people (Branson and Orlando, FL have 19.4 and 16.6 million people respectively). The project is located directly on heavily travelled Highway 231, which exposes the site to in excess of 5 million cars per year. A new major toll road is also planned for the region with an entry and exit in close proximity of Country Crossing. The new Panama City International Airport, currently under construction and slated to open in May, 2010, is only 65 miles to the south, as are the sugar-white beaches and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
