I don’t care what you say… Alan Jackson is still one of the best out there. He knows how to write a song that will make people feel the simple emotions in life that are important. He has one of the best country voices in history and the man knows how to put on a country show. He may not be the most outspoken guy out there, but when he says something people pay attention.
Alan Jackson hasn’t really had a big hit single in a while and I’m not sure if there will be more singles from his latest album. There is one song on there that needs to be released to radio. Let’s call in and request.
Dixie Highway – Alan Jackson
I love this version of the song.
If you’re an Alan Jackson song you’ve probably heard this song before and this version might sound a little different. On the studio version Zac Brown joins Alan for a really great duet. I love that version, but I love this live version too. Alan could release the song on his own and I think it would bring him back to the top of the charts.
His single releases have been curious the past couple years, but this one really gets back to his roots of telling life’s stories. I think that’s what people have always loved about Alan. That and the fact that he can put together a melody like no one else. This song is a little different from songs he’s done in the past, but there is still that familiarity as well.
It’s just a great song.
Don’t you think?
