Alan Jackson has been a major influence in country music since he first appeared on the scene when he sang a George Jones song during a commercial break on a country music talent show. Anyone know what song he sang before you watch it here?
As you likely know already, Alan Jackson isn't only a great musician and entertainer, but he is a fantastic country music song writer. While many artists depend on other writers to come up with great story lines for a song, Alan Jackson songs have for the most part come off the the AL pen.
Some songs listed below are old well known standards such as "The Old Rugged Cross" or "I'll Fly Away" or "How Great Thou Art". But I'm talking about such hits as Chattahoochee, co-written with Jim McBride about the Chattahoochee River. Or when 911 happened, and almost immediately he wrote "Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning".
That is a the talent of a true country music writer when they can take an event, big or small and construct a story from it that invokes real emotion and then put a catchy melody to those words. The man has a true gift in this department.
