Alan Jackson a career that has spanned more than 20 years

Jackson has earned dozens of awards and trophies in a career that has
spanned more than 20 years, and now he has earned yet another accolade. 
Prior to his recent performance on April 12th at the 50th annual Alpha
Psi Rodeo & Concert in Auburn, Alabama, the city’s mayor, Bill Harm,
Jr., declared the entire day Alan Jackson Day in honor of the Georgia
native’s numerous accomplishments in music.  Jackson, who was given a
plaque in honor of the occasion, is also nominated for a Billboard Music
Award next month for Top Christian album for his 2013 record “Precious
Memories, Vol II.”  The 55-year old traditional country singer has
already had a memorable year.  His latest album, “The Bluegrass Album”
has logged in at an impressive four months at the number one spot, but
the singer, who wrote eight of the 11 tracks, remains humble about his
success.  “I’m just a fan of the music.  I didn’t want to do something
that disappointed the bluegrass world.  I didn’t want ’em to think I’m
just another country act wanting to make a bluegrass album.  I really
wanted to try to write some songs that were a decent approach from a
bluegrass perspective, and same way with the production and
everything.”  Jackson will be on tour in the next few months, and he
will undoubtedly perform songs from both his Precious Memories album and
his Bluegrass Album.
