Alan Jackson keeps eclectic musical company. The Nashville Songwriters Hall-of-Famer can be mentioned in the same sentence with Paul McCartney and John Lennon, both of whom also wrote more than 20 songs that rocketed to the top of the charts. But Jackson also gets to rub elbows with Eminem and Pink; his tearful post -9/11 ballad "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning" put him among the 10 best-selling artists since the inception of SoundScan. During his two-decade career, Alan Jackson has topped the country charts 35 times, sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, and built a fort in his living room out of all the ACMS, CMAs, and Grammy Awards he's won.
These days, the mustachioed Grand Ole Opry member still induces weakness in the knees with his resonating baritone voice and steady guitar strumming. During shows, Jackson soothes souls with his laid-back brand of gospel-inspired honky-tonk, often marked by bittersweet refrains such as "So You Don't Love Me Anymore." Crowd-pleasers such as "Chattahoochee," “Good Time,” “Gone Country,” and “Livin’ On Love" dot the setlist, along with plenty of opportunities for Jackson's backup band, The Strayhorns, to steal the spotlight with a blurry-fingered fiddle solo.
