23 years ago today (March 9, 1991), was a big day for Alan Jackson. It was on this day that the singer earned his first No. 1 hit with ‘I’d Love You All Over Again,’ from his freshman album, ‘Here in the Real World.’

Jackson wrote ‘I’d Love You All Over Again’ for his wife, Denise, for their tenth wedding anniversary. The song was the fifth and final single from his debut album. His previous single, ‘Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,’ made it to No. 2 on the charts, with two other singles, ‘Here in the Real World’ and ‘Wanted’ landing at No. 3.

March of 1991 was a big month for the Georgia native. Only three days after ‘I’d Love You All Over Again’ topped the charts, ‘Here in the Real World’ earned platinum status, signifying sales in excess of one million units.

Jackson included the song on his 1995 ‘Greatest Hits Collection’ album, as well as on his 2010 two-disc collection, ’34 Number Ones.’

The singer-songwriter quickly became accustomed to staying at the No. 1 spot on the charts. Since his first chart-topping hit, he has gone all the way to the top 25 more times, with 57 singles landing in the Top 40.
