Alan Jackson Shares 2017 Honky Tonk Highway Tour Plans
Alan Jackson will have a busy 2017: The country icon has announced plans for his Honky Tonk Highway Tour, which will keep him on the road for much of the year.
Jackson's Honky Tonk Highway Tour is set to begin in January; a partial list of dates is below -- more will be announced in the coming weeks -- but so far, the singer has shows scheduled out as late as the end of October. He'll be playing arenas and amphitheaters, as well as at a number of summer country music festivals. Lee Ann Womack will be joining Jackson at select shows.
In 2016, Jackson was out on the road on his Keepin' It Country Tour, celebrating his 25 years in the music business (he signed his first recording contract, with Arista Nashville, in June of 1989). The artist released his 15th studio album, Angels and Alcohol, in July of 2015, put out a live DVD in May and released his Precious Memories Collection in October, showing no signs of slowing down.
“I don’t know what I’d retire from — I don’t work much now,” Jackson says, though he remains modest about his success: “I’ve been touring so long, I didn’t want people to be thinking, ‘Gosh, here comes Alan Jackson again.'"
More information about Jackson’s 2017 tour dates is available on his official website.
