Jackson releases two "Bluegrass Album" videos

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 – Alan Jackson released two music videos from "The Bluegrass Album," he announced today. The video for "Blue Ridge Mountain Song" can be seen on CMT and GAC and online via VEVO, while Blacktop is on Vevo.

Both songs were written by Jackson for the disc. Blue Ridge Mountain Song features Jackson's daughter, Ali, in a storyline that was filmed east of Nashville and in the hills of North Carolina. Blacktop showcases a live performance by Jackson and the musicians from the album, captured at Nashville's The Station Inn. Both videos were helmed by photographer and director David McClister, who directed videos for Ryan Adams, The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum.

Jackson will perform songs from the disc in concert at New York's Carnegie Hall on Oct. 28, joined by the musicians from the album at the special show.

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