Alan Jackson is known as an American country music singer. He is most famous for songs like "Where Were You?" and "Remember When."
Alan Eugene Jackson was born on October 17, 1958, in Newnan, Georgia. He was born to Ruth Musick and Joseph Eugene Jackson. Jackson grew up singing gospel music, both in church and at home with his family. He performed his first song at church as a young boy. Jackson started working at the age of twelve at a local shoe store. Jackson wrote his first song in 1983, and he established a band during high school.
At the age of 27, Jackson moved to Nashville to dedicate himself fully to his music career. During the early 1980s, Jackson held down a series of odd jobs such as a car salesman, construction worker, and forklift operator at K-Mart. While he was working, he played the local club circuit with his band, Dixie Steel. J
As a teenager, Jackson performed locally as part of a country duo. Then, he left school to work, and he married his high school sweetheart, Denise, who worked as an airline stewardess. He married Denise Jackson on December 15, 1979, and the couple has three kids together; Alexandre Jane, born on August 23, 1993, Mattie Denise was born on June 19, 1990, and Dani Grace was born on August 28, 1977.
Jackson caught his big break when his wife, Denise, found country music star Glen Campbell waiting for a flight, and she gave him a copy of her husband's demo tape. Campbell gave her contact information for his music publishing company, and the Jacksons picked up and moved to Nashville shortly after that. Campbell's company suggested that Alan take a year and hone his songwriting. Jackson found a job at The Nashville Network as a staff writer. At night, he performed in Nashville clubs and recorded a demo with songwriter/producer Keith Stegall. In 1989, Jackson became the first artist signed to Arista's new country division, Arista Nashville.
Jackson released his first album in 1990, titled Here in the Real World. This first album became a platinum-selling hit on hits like "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow." "Wanted." and "I'd Love You All Over Again." Jackson released his second album in 1991, titled Don't Rock the Jukebox. This album's title track was a number one smash that year. The record produced more number one hits like "Someday," "Dallas," "Love's Got a Hold on You." It also contained one of Jackson's signature songs, "Midnight in Montgomery," which told the story of a visit to Hank Williams' grave.
Jackson released his third album in 1992, titled A Lot About Livin' (And a Little about Love). The number one smash "Chattahoochee" became another signature tune, and Jackson also topped the charts with "She's Got the Rhythm (And I Got the Blues)," while scoring three more Top Five hits from the album, which became his first to top the country LP charts.
In late 1993, Jackson released a holiday album, Honky Tonk Christmas; he returned in 1994 with Who I Am, which was his second straight number one country album, and had four number-one singles: a cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," "Gone Country," "Livin' on Love," and "I Don't Even Know Your Name."
In 1995, Jackson released The Greatest Hits Collection. It sold over three million copies in one year. In 1996, "Everything I Love" became Jackson's fourth straight release to top the country album charts. Jackson's second greatest hits collection was released in 2003. In 2004 he released What I Do, followed by Precious Memories in 2006, a collection of 15 hymns originally recorded as a Christmas gift for his mother. Like Red on a Rose in 2006, he also released Like Red and Live at Texas Stadium, a concert set with George Strait and Jimmy Buffett, followed in 2007. Finally, in 2008, Good Time was released.
Jackson left Arista Records in 2010 to create his label, Alan's Country Records. The first album under this name was Thirty Miles West in 2012. The next was Precious Memories, Vol. 2 in 2013. Jackson has also released The Bluegrass Album and Angels and Alcohol under this label. In addition, Jackson's 25th anniversary was celebrated by his compilation, Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story.
Jackson has secured many awards and nominations. In 1989, he was nominated for a total of six CMAs. In 1993, Jackson won the American Music Award for Favorite Country Singer. He made history by establishing the record for the most nominations in a single year at the 2002 CMAs. The record-making song was "Where Were You."
