Alan JacksonAlan Jackson has joined the growing number of country stars offering exclusive merchandise at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores. But the superstar has more than just his music to entice hungry shoppers.

The Alan Jackson Collection is a 40-plus piece assortment of menswear, womenswear, food items, collectibles, and the Alan Jackson Signature Rocker. But there will be music, of course -- an exclusive 12-track Cracker Barrel CD called 'Songs of Love and Heartache,' which will include two previously unreleased songs, 'That¹s What I¹d Be Like Without You,' and 'Nothing Sure Looked Good On You.' The collection will also include such familiar hits as 'Here in the Real World,' 'Livin' on Love,' and 'Remember When.'

The Georgia native, who was actively involved in the creation of the collection, says, "I grew up in the South, so Cracker Barrel has been a part of my family since I was a young man. I was really flattered when they came to me with the idea of working together to create a collection for their country store, and I've been very impressed with the variety and quality of the items that we have put together. I think my fans and their families will appreciate everything in the collection."

The Alan Jackson Signature Rocker, made of Dutch Spruce logs harvested in Maine and hand-assembled in Tennessee, includes Alan¹s authentic signature engraved in the headrest. Each rocker is numbered as part of a limited edition of 1,700. Earlier this year, Cracker Barrel introduced a signature Dolly Parton rocker.

Other items in the Alan Jackson Collection will include mugs, candles and decorative throws, along with jewelry, shirts and hats. Cracker Barrel's most recent country-music offerings include exclusive CDs by the Zac Brown Band, Kenny Rogers and George Jones.
