In 2006 Alan Jackson released his first hymns project, titled Precious Memories, as an ode to his mother. Seven years later, Precious Memories has sold 1.7 million albums and Jackson is back in the studio recording more hymns that his mother loves so much. Releasing March 19, 2013, Precious Memories Vol. 2 promises to reach beyond Jackson’s country fans base and into the hearts of hymns and Gospel music fans.
Alan Jackson is as relevant to the country music format, and music in general, than ever before. As one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music, Jackson has sold nearly 60-million albums worldwide, topped the country singles charts 35 times, and scored more than 50 Top-10 hits. He is a 17-time ACM Award winner, a 16-time CMA Award recipient, and a two-time Grammy-honored artist whose songwriting has earned him the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award and an induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame as a 2011 Songwriter/Artist inductee. Jackson has written or co-written 24 of his 35 #1 hit singles, placing him in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Recently, Jackson’s Thirty Miles West project was selected as Rhapsody’s #1 Country Album of 2012, and a song from the album, “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore” was nominated for a GRAMMY® (Best Country Song) and picked as a Top Song of 2012 by Nate Chinen of the New York Times.

Alan Jackson ♥♥| Posted May 12, 2013
Everytime I hear someone singing Amazing Grace, a think: "oh come on, you can't do something after Elvis Presley!!" But when I hear Alan Jackson singing, it's like: "ok, he can do this.."
Love his voice, love country music, love Alan Jackson!!
