Alan Jackson could sing the phone book and it would song good. He’s one of my favorite artists of all time and he’s back with another installment of his gospel series, Precious Memories. This is actually only the second installment, but it’s great to see Alan continue it because I know quite a few people out there love hearing Alan sing those gospel songs.
Amazing Grace – Alan Jackson
We all know this song. It’s one of those you have to hear in your lifetime. You probably sing it growing up with your family and friends. But when Alan sings it there is something special about it. He has a classic voice that is full of sincerity and heart. That seems to make for a great gospel song.
Alan has kind of been struggling since leaving Arista and things actually were kind of struggling even before he left. He had that great duet with Zac Brown Band, but since then he’s been pretty quiet. Now, that’s all relative for Alan Jackson because he has been in the top 30 a couple times, but he’s not having those huge hits like he did for two decades.
I think there are still plenty of good songs coming from Alan Jackson. He just needs that little incentive to get things back on track and I’m sure he’s working on some new songs already. Songwriters write and when Alan needs to he seems to find the ability to go back to the well and bring out more classics.
Until then we can enjoy great performances like this one.
