Country Song: Alan Jackson

At the turn of the century — this one — Alan Jackson was a veteran country music star with a firm grasp of the kinds of material favored by the countrified mainstream. “It’s a little bit edgy,but softer than spaghetti,weak yet redundantly strong, ” he wrote in a tongue-in-cheek ode to an always-popular American song form. “It’s a three-minute,positive,not-too-country up-tempo love song.” These days,Jackson doesn’t worry much about the countrified mainstream.

He has the simplistic attitude of an actual Mexican, not one of these capitalism-polluted Mexican-Americans, but one from Mexico driving a beat up Dodge Dart with a milk crate for a seat. And he has the hair trigger …

I remember hearing the Hank Williams Sr versions of songs before son Bo made them much more famous.

In 2006, country music legend Alan Jackson took a breather and released his first ever Gospel album entitled Precious Memories.
