Biography

ALAN JACKSON - THE BLUEGRASS ALBUM
They say that timing’s everything in bluegrass music. If that’s so, Alan Jackson’s is just right. “I probably started thinking about the bluegrass album sometime in the mid-‘90s,” the iconic country singer and songwriter explains. “But O Brother, Where Art Thou? came along, a couple of other country artists were ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As a superstar who's revered by both the young country audience and traditionalists, Alan Jackson is at his finest when he's steers clear of trifles like "Chattahoochie" and takes those younger fans to school. Here he does just that by paying respects to Hank ("Midnight in Montgomery"), swearing allegiance to George Jones ("Don't Rock the Jukebox"), and calling out all those newcomers who've decided it's time to get twangy now that country's hot ("Gone Country"). All of it pales next to "Here in the Real World," however, as perfect a honky-tonk weeper as mainstream Nashville has produced in 30 years. --David Cantwell

5.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat traditional country for the nineties April 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Alan's brand of traditional country, with just enough of a contemporary edge to appeal to a modern generation, provides a contrast with the prevailing pop country normally recorded by Nashville's major label singers. This collection contains all his big hits from the early part of his career.
Many of the songs are upbeat, happy songs but I was drawn to his music originally by Here in the real world, a sad song that Alan delivers superbly, which was the title track of his debut album.
The album opens with Chattahoochie, a very upbeat song that should get those toes tapping. There are so many great songs here, including Gone country (an amusing song about failed pop and folk singers trying to sing country), Midnight in Montgomery (an ode to Hank Williams), I don't even know your name (which Alan wrote as a joke) and Someday (about always putting things off to be done some day).
Alan writes or co-writes most of his own material, but has also demonstrated his brilliance with covers. On this collection, you will find covers of Tall tall trees (George Jones), Summertime blues (Eddie Cochran) and Mercury blues.
This collection covers the hits from the albums Here in the real world, Don't rock the jukebox, A lot about living and Who I am, together with two songs especially recorded for this collection - I'll try and the previously-mentioned Tall tall trees. As I write this, there is no volume two, but there is certainly enough material for such a volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars every one a winner June 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There isn't a lame song in this whole collection. Not only is Jackson a superstar for his talent as a performer, but his copious gift as a songwriter will ensure his fame long after he's gone from this earthly realm.
He penned 15 of the 20 songs on this CD, among them many of my favorites like "She's Got the Rhythm" and most of all, "Midnight in Montgomery"...the entire CD is worth buying for this song alone...a moving tribute to Hank Williams, with a haunting, beautiful melody.
The musicianship thoughout is top-notch. Just listen to "I Don't Even Know Your Name"...it's spectacular, and those guitars on "Mercury Blues" !...just amazing. The booklet is great, with lyrics and commentary by Jackson about each song (though you'll need a magnifying glass to read it, it's worth it), and lots of photos, including a back page "centerfold" of Mr. Long 'n' Lean himself that's really, I mean really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just go country August 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I recomend Alan Jackson and his music (particularly this album)as a start up for those who have never been about to even try listening to country music. Once you hear it you'll love it. Songs here are very well balanced from dynamic and "full of pep" Chatahoochie, educative "I don't even know your name" (straight tequilla may place you in a very unfavourable situation)to nostalgic "Home".
So if you're not already "Gone country" at least give it a try now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great CD for all music fans October 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Alan Jackson is one of the few current country artists that adhere to the country music traditions established by Merle Haggard and George Jones. This CD has it all -- upbeat honky tonk, gorgeous ballads, great songwriting, and Jackson's classic baritone. This CD is a must for not only country music fans, but fans of great songwriting in general, no matter the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good album December 16, 1999
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
Country is the only music I particulary like other than oldies! This album is a great work of art with 20 songs! Ive listened to the cd over and over again till I memerized the cd. It ties in with traditional country music such as George Jones! I like the fast beat to his music which makes people feel better rather than making one depresed like some of George Strait's music does! Who cares if he advertised for Ford changing some of the lyrics to Mercury Blues. He is making money off great music! This album features Alan's best with each song having a meaning to it! I would like to approve Alan for his diligent work for keeping the traditional country music alive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album! 20 excellent songs on one CD!!! July 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These songs are a good reason to listen to country music. Whether it be "Chatahoochie," "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow," "Don't Rock The Jukebox," or more subtle songs like "I'd Love You All Over Again," "Midnight In Montgomery," or my favorite, Livin' On Love," they are all great songs, up-tempo, mid-tempo, or ballad. And for the person who berated the recent Ford commercials on the review on June 16, lighten up!! They are only using simple, small parts of the song for a purpose. The only thing Alan Jackson is doing for a buck is making great music. That's no crime!!! These reviews are used for rating albums, not for childish, as well as petty, griping. As for the album, it was great and keep it coming, Alan!!

5.0 out of 5 stars impressive November 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Alan Jackson is a true country singer who sticks to traditional country songs. This album features many of those songs such as "Midnight in Montgomery," "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow," "Don't Rock the Jukebox," and "Tall Tall Trees." It features a very impressive collection of songs that will go down as some of the greatest ever recorded. I rank this as one of my favorite albums, and I'm glad I got it. AJ is truly a great singer. If you can find this album, get it!
