A good old boy from small town Georgia who worked on cars with his dad made the best decision of his life. Alan Jackson made the move to Nashville to chase his dream of being a country music star. Thank God he did too.
31 years ago today, Alan Jackson released, “Here In The Real World” , and a country legend was born. February 27, from here on out should be know as Alan Jackson Day. It’s not to much to ask for. Country fans ain’t afraid to protest for this neither…after a six pack of course.
Alan Jackson has 36 number one songs and there’s no doubt that he helped make the Class of 1989 look great. The album’s success helped to revitalize traditional country music and placed Jackson among the Class of 1989, which included Jackson, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Travis Tritt to name a few.
