When Alan Jackson started writing "Small Town Southern Man," he had it in his mind to portray the kind of simple, well-meaning people he grew up around. Alan hadn't intended it to be autobiographical, but he did put some personal touches in the song. He made a reference to his father, who died eight years ago, and he included some of his own parenting philosophies in the lyrics.
