– Alan Jackson was in a giving mood Wednesday.
Jackson gave Zac Brown a 1966 Cadillac El Dorado convertible at a concert Wednesday in Nashville. Jackson gave the band the car for having him sing on their number one hit As She's Walking Away.
Jackson arranged for the 1966 Cadillac El Dorado convertible to be brought into the backstage area of the arena and surprised Brown with the gift prior to the show. "I think Zac is one of the coolest new talents to come along, and he's a Georgia boy like me," Jackson said. "It was an honor to be on his record."
Brown said, "I will pay it forward. What an amazing night, amazing friend, amazing car...and if I want to pull a Hank Sr., I now have the ride to do it in."

Alan Jackson makes his statement crystal clear with the title - "The Bluegrass Album."

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. ...
