Country legend Alan Jackson has announced a new 2017 tour stop. Coming off the heels of an incredibly successful and hot-ticket tour this summer, appropriately titled the Keepin' It Country Tour, he is extending his time on the road well into the new year, including the upcoming Jan. 28 show at the Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Georgia. Fellow music-maker and friend Lee Ann Womack is slated to be the special guest.
Show tickets go on-sale this Friday (Dec. 2) at 10 a.m. EST. Pre-sale begins tomorrow (Nov. 29) here on AXS.com. Prices range $49.50-$79.50.
Fans will undoubtedly be treated with a bevy of Jackson's most enduring classics, including "Chattahoochee,” “Drive," “Gone Country," “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere," “Good Time" and his powerful debut single "Here in the Real World," the title cut to his outstanding 1990 debut studio album. Last year, Jackson commemorated his long-standing legacy with a mighty three-disc set called Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story, packed with his classic hits, ranging from "Chasing that Neon Rainbow" and "Livin' on Love" to "Pop a Top" (a cover of the Jim Ed Brown classic) and "As She's Walking Away," and many in between. Fans can now listen to the project below, via Spotify.
Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story is available for purchase on the singer's official website.
Rumor has it, Womack will be performing brand new and unreleased songs during the show. Her last studio album was 2014's exquisite The Way I'm Livin'.
Earlier this month, Jackson performed at the 50th CMA Awards in several extraordinary moments, including his duet with George Strait for a mash-up of "Remember When" and Strait's own "Troubadour." Jackson also helped open the show, joining such acts as Vince Gill, Randy Travis, Brad Paisley, Charley Pride and Reba (and others) with a medley of classic country standards. In the middle of the massive collaboration, Jackson performed a clip of his toe-tappin' song "Don't Rock the Jukebox." Other songs in the performance included Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" (led by Gill), "Mountain Music" (Alabama), "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" (Charlie Daniels), "Stand by Your Man" (performed by show host Carrie Underwood) and "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail" (a Buck Owen song performed by Paisley and Roy Clark).
