Alan Jackson At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Now one of the more recognized names in country music, Alan Jackson was born in October of 1958 in Newnan, Georgia. Jackson spent his childhood singing in church, but it wasn’t until the late 80s that he really started his career in country music. His mixture of traditional honky tonk country and mainstream country gave him the start he needed with Arista Nashville recording company. In 1989, he released his first single, “Blue Blooded Woman.” His sophomore single, “Here in the Real World,” peaked at Number Three by early the next year. It was followed shortly after by five Number One singles and another Top 5 hit. In 1991, Jackson was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
