Alan Jackson Opens Fall Shows With Chris Young, Band Perry
Alan Jackson is taking fellow CMA Award nominees Chris Young and the Band Perry on the road with him for his upcoming fall tour. The trek kicks off November 4 at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., and runs through November 20.
It's been 20 years since the release of the superstar's debut album, 'Here in the Real World,' and on November 23, he'll cap those two decades with '34 Number Ones,' a two-disc set of chart-toppers.
Earlier this year, when Alan's latest album, 'Freight Train' was released, he talked to The Boot about his then-upcoming summer tour, which included Chris Young and Josh Turner. And considering the lineup of the Band Perry (two guys and a girl), Alan spoke prophetically about his fall trek, saying, "We try to look at everybody that's available and who would work well with the show. Typically, I try to take a girl act out or a band or something so it's not the same thing."
Alan received his 79th career CMA nomination for 'Till the End,' a duet with Lee Ann Womack from 'Freight Train.' Next week (September 14), the Georgia native will be presented with ASCAP's Founders Award, the performing rights organization's most prestigious honor.
