Spicer's Music Day postponed until August to break record

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Make Music Alabama has been postponed until August due to inclement-weather caused by Tropical Storm Cindy.

The Opelika-Auburn News (http://bit.ly/2sKjwa6 ) reports Auburn's Spicer's Music postponed the event until Aug. 22. Officials say the postponement might be a blessing in disguise to help a music store reattempt to break the Guinness record for world's largest rock band.

About 850 singers, drummers, guitarists and other musicians packed the Gay Street parking lot last summer to perform "Sweet Home Alabama." The amount barely missed the world-breaking mark.

Spicer's Music looked to make a second attempt this week for the record seeking to gather 1,500 to perform Sister Hazel's "All for You" during the second Make Music Day Alabama.

Auburn University students' return in the fall could add to the number already registered.
