Alan Jackson is an American country music singer and he is also a songwriter. Alan was born on October 17th, 1958 and he was considered as the best country music singer during the 1990’s. He is originally from McKinley, TX. At the beginning Jackson worked at The Nashville Network’s post office but his wife Denise met Glen Campbell who helped Alan to be a great country music star.

By 1989 Jackson released his first album entitled “Here in the Real World” and two years later the second disc named “Don’t Rock the Jukebox”. In 1992 he launched his third album called “A Lot About Livin’ (And A Little ‘Bout Love)” which contains one of his most successful and enduring singles called “Chattahoochee”. After that, Jackson continued releasing more albums.

But in 2001 he became famous again when he composed the song “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” which is a song that protests against the September 11th, 2001 attacks. This single rapidly became a hit single and also impulsed him into the mainstream attention when the single was used for a parody in the famous TV animated series “South Park” in one of its episodes.

The discs of Alan Jackson have been recorded by some of the biggest like Charley Pride who recorded the album “Here in the Real World”. He has also shared the scenery with other country music singers like George Jones on the award winning “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair”. Jackson has critiqued the wannabes who sarcastically emerged on the country music scene during the 90’s. Alan Jackson has a discography composed of sixteen records. The last one released this year is entitled “Precious Memories”.
