Alan Jackson is pretty upset about the state of country music and he had some choice words to say. He said, “country music is gone and it’s not coming back.
“It’s like the 1980s again. I’m 62 years old; I’m not some 30-year-old stud. It’s not the same, but somebody has to bring it back, because it’s not just people in their 50s, it’s people in their 20s, too,” the country icon continues in an interview with HITS Daily Double.
Alan Jackson has been true to country music with songs like “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow” , “Here In The Real World” , “Wanted” and “Chattahoochee” to name a few. When you see Alan Jackson. You know immediately that he’s country. He’s someone you have to mention when you talk about real country artists and there’s no doubt that he’s true to traditional country music.
Country music has definitely went more pop country in recent years and some say they’re alienating the traditional country fan. There’s no arguing that the sound of today’s modern day country music not what Hank Williams Sr, Pasty Cline, Loretta Lynn and Waylon Jennings was playing. Today’s country music sells…to people who live in the city extremely well. So, Alan Jackson, voicing his feelings about the state of country music more than likely resonates with a lot of country music fans that still buy drinking and cheating songs (we still buy ‘em).
Alan Jackson’s new album “Where Have You Gone” will be available anywhere you buy and stream music May 14, 2021 featuring 21 new songs from the country boy himself.
God bless Alan Jackson! We still need a Alan Jackson federal holiday in this country!
