Throwback Thursday Artist Spotlight: Alan Jackson

After attending the 50th Annual CMA awards I was inspired to start a series to spotlight the very artists I grew up listening to, the artists of yesterday that forged the path, are the idols of today’s country artists and the ones that have left a legacy of great country music. Today, and the seventh of the series, is about Alan Jackson.

No one forgets their first concert and Mr. Jackson was mine back in 1996. Ever since then my childhood was filled with country music and memories- one so vivid as sitting on Santa’s lap as a young girl and asking him solely for Alan’s CD that year. Alan Jackson is everything country music is about- songs of the workin’ man!

From humble beginnings in Georgia to stardom in Nashville and now owner of his own Honkytonk on Lower Broadway among his other success, Jackson is host to a very prolific career in this business. Jackson is proof staying true to your country roots can take you all the way, and for that I will always be a huge fan of his. Here’s a full playlist of some of AJ’s classics!!

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
