Alan Jackson Goes Bluegrass

Country music legend Alan Jackson has released an album of Bluegrass music. In several interviews, he’s claimed that it’s a project he’s always wanted to make, and now that he owns his own record label the concept didn’t have to wait any longer.

Alan Jackson’s voice is a perfect fit to the acoustic strings of Bluegrass music. On the CD, simply titled The Bluegrass Album, Jackson has penned eight of the 14 tracks. Highlights include his original compositions ‘Blue Ridge Mountain Song’ and ‘Blue Side Of Heaven.’

‘Blue Ridge Mountain Song’ is a classic-style Jackson story song that could easily be translated into a country hit, much like ‘Small Town Southern Boy’ or ‘Livin’ On Love.’

Die-hard Alan Jackson fans will remember his album cut ‘Let’s Get Back To Me And You’ from 1995, that now finds a new home with a fun stringy bluegrass arrangement. The 3 time CMA Entertainer of the Year also honors John Anderson by covering his No. 1 from 1982 ‘Wild and Blue’ and the obvious and much appreciated tribute of Bill Monroe’s ‘Blue Moon of Kentucky.’

Non-Bluegrass fans may have to listen a few times to get hooked, but once you do, you’ll enjoy this refreshing sound that really showcases and reminds us of Alan Jackson’s masterful songwriting craft and solid southern vocals. To celebrate the release of this milestone, Jackson will perform a special Bluegrass concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall on Oct. 28.
