Alan Jackson fans make their debut

Monday, December 1, 2008 – Alan Jackson's fans make their video debut tonight when the video to his Top 10 single Country Boy premieres on GAC. Jackson hatched the idea to ask fans to submit video ideas of what it means to be a country boy or girl, and he picked 10 of his favorites to include in the video along with his performance at a classic truck graveyard outside of Nashville. The video airs at 5:20 p.m. and 11:55 p.m. and tomorrow at 7:55 a.m. and 4:47 p.m. eastern.

This weekend, Dec. 6, at 9:00p.m., CMT broadcasts a 90-minute special, "CMT Giants: Alan Jackson," which was taped before a live audience on Oct. 30 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The tribute will feature live performances by George Strait, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Lee Ann Womack and Miranda Lambert with special appearances by George Jones, Carrie Underwood, Diane Sawyer and Jimmy Buffet.

The video includes guitar-playing Corey Fields, from Pleasant Garden, N.C., and country girls Sarah, Heather, Heather and Jenn who met through line dancing in Grand Rapids, Mich. From Advance, N.C. are two generations of Stansberry's fishing for fun. Georgians Marcus and Winter Lowery love trucks and mud. Mark Trotter taped a recliner being pulled down an Iowa farm road. Melanie Wiggins does a tribute to cotton farmers and the Hutson's from Sheridan, Ind. share their secret of staying cool in the summer, go-karting though water. On the West coast, fans Aaron Wilson, Samo Schallhorn, Ryan Bailey, and Kyle Eaton go canal skiing in Ellensburg Wash.

Country Boy is the third hit single from Jackson's critically acclaimed "Good Time" album, out earlier this year.

CD review - Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story Tim O'Brien "Pompadour" Howdy Skies Records Reviewed by Donald Teplyske It is difficult to tally exactly how many albums of new material Tim O'Brien has released since first appearing as part of Hot Rize, the venerable bluegrass band experiencing a well-received resurgence. More than 20 by any count, 30-plus when one considers solo, duet and group offerings, including his most recent success as part of the Earls of Leicester. Aside from a brief flirtation with the ...
CD review - Angels and Alcohol Alan Jackson, circa 2015, now might be, unfortunately, considered a retro artist. Jackson, thankfully, does not veer from his traditional country beat on his first new studio disc in three years. It's the traditional sound that makes him a throwback today. In an age of rock and rap meshing with country, Jackson will have none of that on this meat-and-potatoes rendering. Jackson's viewpoint has always been about the simple truths of life. He makes that clear in the leadoff track, ...
CD review - The Bluegrass Album Alan Jackson makes his statement crystal clear with the title - "The Bluegrass Album." The traditional country singer has "gone bluegrass," although the idea of a bluegrass disc should not come off as all that far fetched. Yes, there's no pedal steel here, but the sounds, subject and voice are not very different from a typical AJ disc. And this is not the first time that Jackson has veered off the straight and narrow path as his gospel albums indicated. ...
