City Stages 2006, Birmingham’s annual three-day music festival, brought out the crowds for Shinedown, Hank Williams Jr., Snoop Dogg and American Idol Taylor Hicks. Despite a crazy name (“Waldrep, Stewart & Kendrick City Stages Presented by Lanny Vines & Associates”) and persistent debt, the music showcase endured for an 18th outing.

Wade on Birmingham provided coverage before, during and after the festival.
