Nashville just gained one new icon within it’s Country Music Hall of Fame. Alan Jackson is a Grammy award-winning country music singer with deep roots in Georgia and his signature country sound brought him great success and recognition that’s reached new heights.
After signing his record deal with Arista Nashville 28 years ago, he’s made 30 No. 1 hits and sold 60 million albums.. and now he’s being inducted as Modern Era Artist at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
“My whole career has just been a fairy tale, all the stuff that’s happened to me,” Jackson said. “I came to Nashville with nothing and ignorant about the music business and had no experience, and then to go through all of this, this is the ultimate piece of the puzzle. I don’t even know how to describe it.”
Jackson joins three other musicians who were tapped to join the hall which includes the names of country music’s most legendary musicians.
Also being indicted is Jerry Reed as the Veteran Era Artist as well as songwriter Don Schlitz for his behind the scenes contributions to famous musicians.
