It’s about life and love and crying and dying and heartache and drinking and having a good time and Friday nights – all things, to me, that have always been a part of country music…Country music is always about so many things. I felt like this title – Angels and Alcohol – kind of is [from] one end to the other.”

    Alan Jackson (Angels and Alcohol) OC: …the other. :42
    “It sounded like a good title to me, first of all. I don’t know. People always ask me about country music, and I even say this on stage a lot when I say hello at the beginning of my shows, you know, about how I’m gonna do country music for ya. This song is about such a wide expanse of your life. It’s about life and love and crying and dying and heartache and drinking and having a good time and Friday nights – all things, to me, that have always been a part of country music. It’s not just, a lot of music’s just about love or lost love, typically. Country music is always about so many things. I felt like this title – Angels and Alcohol – kind of is [from] one end to the other.”

  • ALAN JACKSON ENJOYED HANGING OUT WITH STEVEN TYLER FOR THIS WEEK’S CMT MUSIC AWARDS.

    Alan Jackson had a blast when he teamed up with Steven Tyler to film a couple of skits for Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards. Steven played a “Guuber” driver, who picked Alan up to take him to the awards. The two seemed to get along famously, even singing Alan’s huge hit “Don’t Rock the Jukebox” together, followed by a little “Walk This Way.” Alan had previously met the Aerosmith rocker and his family at one of his shows in Boston years ago, and he says Steven is very genuine.

    “He’s a character. I mean, I haven’t been around him that much, but he’s always wide open, and that’s the way he was at this little shoot, but really just full of energy,” says Alan. “He’s got a lot of soul. He’s a singer, and he’s just genuine. He seems really nice. I was very surprised at how nice he really is.”

    Apparently, the second skit was due to some adlibbing the pair did during the shoot, and the show’s producer liked it so much, he put it in the show.

    Alan is getting ready to release his new album, Angels and Alcohol, July 17th.

    Audio / Backstage at LP Field during night one of the CMA Music Festival, Alan Jackson talked about Steven Tyler. The two were in a couple of skits for this year’s CMT Music Awards, which aired on Wednesday night.

    AJ (Steven Tyler) OC: …really is. :37
    “I had met him years ago. Long time ago, I was playing in Boston at a concert up there and he came to the show with his family. I think at that time maybe his young daughters might’ve been fans of mine or something at that time. But he’s always been a fan of country music and music, you know, he’s a song guy, a songwriter, but he’s a character. I mean, I haven’t been around him that much, but he’s always wide open, and that’s the way he was at this little shoot, but really just full of energy. He’s got a lot of soul. He’s a singer, and he’s just genuine. He seems really nice. I was very surprised at how nice he really is.”

  • ALAN JACKSON’S COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME EXHIBIT IS GETTING READY TO END ITS RUN.

    The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s exhibition Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country will end its run Sunday, June 21, 2015. Originally scheduled to end in March this year, the exhibit was held over by popular demand to give CMA Music Fest fans one last opportunity to see the exhibit before it closes.

    An expertly curated deep-dive into Jackson’s career, the exhibition includes awards, instruments, costumes and personal mementos—many that fans will recognize from his concerts and music videos—as well as never-before-seen treasures from Jackson’s private man-cave.

    Artifacts on display in the exhibition include:

    • The guitar he played on the CMA Awards when he debuted “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” just two months after the September 11 terrorist attacks and the nation’s response that inspired the song.
    • The front of an old, red Ford pickup truck that served as Jackson’s first Fan Fair booth, before his sister and brother-in-law had it made into a desk.
    • Items from Jackson’s collection of “Mayberry” memorabilia—a jacket, jersey and autographed picture from Don Knotts—from Jackson’s television favorite, The Andy Griffith Show.
    • Jackson’s first tricycle, childhood bike and scooter, evidence that his love of vehicles started early.
    • Harley-Davidson motorcycle from the cover of the seminal album A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ’bout Love).
    • The water ski Jackson used, while wearing his trademark white cowboy hat, in the “Chattahoochee” music video.

    Jackson will release Angels and Alcohol, his 15th studio album and first of all new music in three years, on Friday, July 17. The album comes 25 years after the debut of his landmark album Here in the Real World.

    Throughout his 25-year career, Jackson has been steadfast in his love for traditional music while enjoying major chart success. Since signing his record deal in June 1989, he has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide and ranks as one of the 10 best-selling male vocalists of all-time in all genres. He has released more than 60 singles—registering 50 Top Ten hits and 35 #1s (including 26 Billboard #1s). He has earned more than 150 music industry awards—including 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, a pair of Grammys and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards. Jackson received the first-ever ASCAP Heritage Award in 2014 having earned the title of most performed country music songwriter-artist of ASCAP’s first 100 years.  He is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.

  • ALAN JACKSON WRAPS FIRST LEG OF 25TH ANNIVERSARY KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 26, 2015) Country superstar Alan Jackson just wrapped the spring run of his 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR to a capacity crowd at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver (Morrison), CO. Sponsored by Kubota Tractor Corporation, the tour made stops to massive critically-acclaimed reviews and sold out crowds in Los Angeles, Nashville, Kansas City, Green Bay, the tour’s kickoff in Fort Myers, FL and the famed Houston Rodeo among others. Capitol Records Nashville’s Jon Pardi and Grammy/CMA/ACM nominated hit singer/songwriter Brandy Clark joined Jackson on this first leg of the tour.

    Throughout the tour, Jackson received rave reviews from fans and critics alike:

    “The enduring quality of the 56-year-old Georgia native’s work — ‘Don’t Rock the Jukebox’ and ‘Chattahoochee,’ or ‘I Don’t Even Know Your Name’ and ‘Here in the Real World’ — allows it sound as relevant in 2015 as it did in 1989 or 1992.” – Ft. Worth Star Telegram

    “With a few chords and a deft phrase or two, Jackson can do in three minutes what some artists never accomplish in entire careers.” – Ft. Worth Star Telegram

    “From the high-pitched screams coming from the crowd, you would have thought Justin Bieber was playing at Valley View Casino Center Friday night.” – San Diego Union Tribune

    “Jackson’s tour, which stopped Friday night for a sold-out concert at the Nokia Theatre, might be an assurance that he won’t be next to disappear.” – Los Angeles Times

    “From the moment he sauntered onto the stage and began singing “Gone Country,” the audience was his to command.” – San Diego Union Tribune

    “An artist who knows how to get you with a hook (‘Livin’ on Love,’ ‘Drive’), Jackson’s music is unapologetically grounded in honky tonk. Pure country in its purest form …” – Green Bay Press Gazette

    “Jackson already has, as he admitted onstage, more hits than can fit in a two-hour concert, but if country music is lucky enough to get another 25 years of music from the singer, to quote one of his own songs, ‘that’d be all right.’” – Tennessean

    Jackson’s KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR takes a break before heading out again early this summer in advance of the July 17 release of his first studio album of new music in three years, Angels and Alcohol.  Jackson will headline shows at the Rock The South music festival in Cullman, AL (June 20), Calgary, AB (July 7), the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, CA (July 28), Minnesota State Fair (Aug 30), Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL (Aug 31) and Chasin’ The Sun music festival in Panama City (Sept 26). Tickets and information for all KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR dates will be available via local outlets and by visiting www.alanjackson.com, where you can find information about Alan, his tour schedule, music and more.

    Jackson will release Angels and Alcohol, his 15th studio album, on July 17. The album was produced by Jackson’s long-time collaborator and friend Keith Stegall who has produced every one of Jackson’s 23 albums over the past 25 years with the exception of one album – Like Red On A Rose (Alison Krauss).

    Angels and Alcohol is available for preorder by clicking HERE

    Alan Jackson’s 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR has been a memorable celebration for his longtime fans as well as the legions of new fans who have been discovering his music throughout this 25th Anniversary celebration. His songs have withstood the test of time and influenced many new artists of today like the tour’s special guests Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark. Fans have heard the songs they have loved over the past 25 years from the man who wrote them and made them famous – from his massive debut hit, “Here In The Real World” to “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” the summertime party-anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” and many, many more.

    Jackson’s tour has been an extension of the year-long 25th anniversary celebration which kicked off last summer with the opening of his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country, which will run through June 21, 2015. The multi-platinum selling Grammy winner played two record-breaking sold out shows last October at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater making him the first simultaneous artist-in-residence and major museum exhibit subject.
