Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson is my favorite country music artist. He conveys simple truths about life that many other music artists seem to miss. Like George Strait, Alan has never tried to reach beyond himself to be something he is not. I consider Alan Jackson on par with Hank Williams Sr., Willie Nelson, and the other legends of country. I feel he is the greatest country singer-song writer of his generation.

I will write more about Alan over time. Still let me leave you something to think about; of the artists who debuted with Alan in 1989, who is still at his level artistically and commercially? How about the artists who debuted before 1989? I think it is an awfully short list.
