If you like old school country music, you may be a fan of Alan Jackson. The Georgia native released his first album in 1990, and has sold over 40 million records and scored 30 #1 country hits since. He's won countless industry awards and, recently, the smooth-voiced star was nominated for a 2008 Grammy for best male country vocal performance for last year's "A Woman's Love."
Our video this week is Jackson's latest, "Small Town Southern Man," released as a single last year and slated to appear on his pending Good Time album. It tells the story of a regular Joe who believes in the values of family, faith and tradition, like many in Jackson's audience. We're sure that--like us!--you'll find it to be uplifting as all git-out... so enjoy, and please let us know what you think!
