Jackson works for free

Thursday, August 11, 2011 – Alan Jackson will work for free this fall.

Well, at least one concert via a contest. Jackson is working with Eventful, to give country music fans the opportunity to demand that their city host a free concert in celebration of his new studio album to be released this fall on EMI Records Nashville/ACR (Alan's Country Records).

Fans have until Oct. 10 to cast a vote for their city at Eventful. Participants can also spread the word across Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms by inviting their friends to demand the event in their city as well. The city with the most demands will host the exclusive free show.

Eventful's Demand it! service is used by over 100,000 performers who engage with millions of their fans to find out where they are in demand, and then utilize this essential data to optimize future tour routing and make informed decisions about where to appear. Long Way To Go is the first single from Jackson's new album and is currently available digitally.

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. ...
