Blue Collar Country Update

Blue Collar Country Update

Posted: Updated:
GULF SHORES, Alabama -

Not much has changed at the 500 acre Blue Collar Country site since the development was announced six months ago.

Developer Glenn Bilbo, would not talk to us on camera, but says there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work happening, including securing business, building and environmental permits.

Will the 200 million dollar project tied to celebrities Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall and Tony Orlando become a reality?

The city of Foley thinks so.

"Progress is being made on a daily basis," says Jeff Rouzie, city development. "A large project like this takes a lot of time to assemble."

Blue Collar Country developers say the entertainment destination will feature hotels, shops, restaurants, theaters, and amusement rides.

Developers say the complex will employ 14-hundred people when it opens in 2015.
