Alan Jackson Tour Schedule
Alan Jackson tickets are big news in the Country world. Part of the reason is his ability to put out pure Country, even as the rest compromise with poppier sounds. Jackson's great achievement was to draw in much larger numbers than a more limited Country performer might do while writing many of his own songs. When Jackson headed from his native Newnan to the Country capital of Nashville, he set in motion a chain reaction; a friendship with Country legend Glenn Campbell led to Jackson recording his first album, Here in the Real World, which sold hugely in the real Country world, instantly proving his pedigree and ability to divine what the public wanted. Jackson was nominated for six Country Music Association awards that year, no mean feat, and he set off on the road to total stardom. Before long, Jackson was writing songs for Country giants like Clay Walker and Faith Hill, and his prominence was inevitable. The value of a couple of Alan Jackson tickets was suddenly increased manyfold.
Jackson's Greatest Hits Collection was released in 1995, and it contained no less than 17 proven hits, plus a track never released before from his early career. Jackson's output knew no bounds by this time, and he performed on 1999's CMA awards show, having recently released Under the Influence, his album of traditional Country sounds that flew in the face of the increasingly poppy brand of his music then flooding the charts. The word is that Jackson is on tour again, and Alan Jackson tickets are right here for the taking. Don't miss this guy; he pioneered the Old School Country style when it appeared to be on its last legs. Jackson is only interested in doing it right, and when you do Country right, you do everything right. His "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)", released in response to the September 11 attacks, sent a ripple of recognition through America, and for one sweet time, Jackson spoke to the bubblegum crowd as much as the Country hardcore. And they loved it. His induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2001 says it all. Buy Alan Jackson concert tickets and find true Country for yourself. Real Country is like riding a bike. Once you've heard it it never completely goes away.
