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

If Alan Jackson's 1989 debut album were to be released in a crossover climate, it's debatable if anyone at country radio would give it a shot. "Too country now for country" might be the verdict. With its mournful warning that in the real world "cowboys don't always get the girl," the title ballad was an instant classic. Jackson wrote or cowrote every song on the album but one, including the semi-autobiographical "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow" and "Home." In the liner notes, he referred to George Jones's death-of-country lament "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes." "I don't know if I can fill 'em, but I'd sure like to try 'em on," he wrote. Guess what? They fit. -Rick Mitchell

Product Description

I got this CD on sale but after listening to it it's worth full price. One would think that someone out there with that much talent, range, and just plain great singing would sell millions and millions. It's a shame today's pop hasn't kept up with the likes of Alan Jackson. In fact a lot of country isn't all THIS good. I sat for hours listening to "8 CDs of Country Classics" and found some good ones. Then I put in Alan Jackson and god it's really just as good and in some cases better. Were talking listening to likes of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty, and Willie Nelson. I'd say add Alan Jackson to the bunch. Like lots of critics have said, he's just great and gets better and better.

4.0 out of 5 stars First and Best September 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Not counting the Greatest Hits, this is Alan Jackson's best album. I didn't jump on the "Chattahoochee" bandwagon like everyone else did. I already liked Alan Jackson when that song came out and it almost made me a non-fan because country radio ran it right straight into the ground like they do Garth, Shania, Tim, and Faith these days. Here in the Real World offers several fantastic cuts that he has matched only a couple of times since. The title hit, Chasin' That Neon Rainbow, Home, and I'd Love You All Over Again are all good songs, but it's the second single that nails it for me---"Wanted". It's the best song in Mr. Jackson's entire career and it alone would make this album worth buying. All those others I mentioned are just icing on the cake.
