Alan Jackson 2016 tour dates

Alan Jackson was born and raised in Newnan, Ga., the youngest, and only boy, of five children. Although he did not originally intend to have a career in country music, he became enthralled by the music of artists such as Gene Watson and John Anderson and decided that he wanted to follow in their footsteps. At the age of 27, Jackson and his wife Denise relocated to Nashville so that he could pursue music full time. The future country legend’s high school sweetheart ran into Glen Campbell while working as a flight attendant, and Campbell helped Jackson land his first record deal, with Arista Records. Jackson’s debut album, ‘Here in the Real World’, was released in 1990 and features four Top 5 singles, including “I’d Love You All Over Again,” which became Jackson’s first No. 1 hit. The singer released 13 studio albums with Arista before changing labels in the early 2010s and has earned more than 50 Top 40 hits, including his duet with Jimmy Buffett, “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” which spent eight weeks at the top of the charts when it was released in 2003. “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” which Jackson wrote and recorded for his 2002 album ‘Drive’ in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is another of the artist’s most well-known singles; the song won him three ACM Awards, two CMA Awards and his very first Grammy Award. Jackson, the father of three girls, is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
