Alan Jackson Signs Recording Contract
On
June 26, 1989 – 25 years ago today – a then-unknown singer-songwriter
from the small town of Newnan, GA put pen to paper and signed his first
major recording contract. His name was Alan Jackson…and that “dream come
true” moment set the stage for a career that Jackson – and those in the
room with him – could only have imagined.
Twenty-five
years later, Jackson is still going strong. He’s sold millions of
albums, scored dozens of chart-topping hits, written songs that defined a
generation, and entertained country music fans around the world…and
he recently announced plans for a year-long celebration of his 25th
anniversary in the music business. Jackson is working on new music that
will be released in the coming months…a special 25-city, 25th
anniversary tour is being planned for 2015…and on August 29th the
Country Music Hall of Fame will unveil a new exhibit coinciding with
Jackson’s role as the Hall’s next Artist-in-Residence
