Band Bio: Picture the well-worn floors of a not-too-trendy establishment, any given evening, Anytown, USA. In particular, conjure the corner jukebox, the anthems that somehow cut the clatter. Though a commonplace scenario, something profound separates fleeting radio flash from barroom timelessness. Alan Jackson?s music has always exemplified the latter.

All of these seeming dichotomies??everyman? and ?individual,? ?contemporary? and ?traditional,? ?superstardom? and ?humility?? are the natural result of a long-ago adoption of hard-work and basic integrity. Specifically, Alan?s music displays the influence of his Newnan, Georgia upbringing: big family, small house, blue-collar ethics. His father taught him to work on cars, his mother?s Sunday gospel segued into the country radio of the workweek. Having earned his stripes in honky-tonks, Alan and wife Denise (his high-school sweetheart) eventually scrimped, saved and moved to Nashville. Following a trying series of clock-jobs and close calls, eventual publishing cuts earned Jackson a spot on the Arista Nashville roster. Fifteen years and 43 Top 10?s later, he?s still a guy who drives a dented pickup on a dirt road for fun. Difference is that now he writes a song about it, reaching millions of people [?Drive (For Daddy Gene),? from 2002?s Drive].
