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

Originally released in January 2006, Alan Jackson s Precious Memories album was created
as an ode to his mother who, throughout his career, consistently requested that Alan
record a gospel album. So, Alan recorded Precious Memories with 15 traditional gospel
hymns, never anticipating that anyone, besides his mother, would be interested in the
project. Precious Memories has since sold 1.7 million albums and is currently out of
circulation, until now.


The re-release of Precious Memories on March 27th comes at a time when Alan Jackson is
as relevant to the country music format, and music in general, than ever before. As one
of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music, Alan Jackson has sold
nearly 60-million albums worldwide, topped the country singles charts 35 times, and
scored more than 50 Top-10 hits. He is a 17-time ACM Award winner, a 16-time CMA
Award recipient, and a two-time Grammy-honored artist whose songwriting has
earned him the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award and an induction into the
Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame as a 2011 Songwriter/Artist inductee. Alan has
written or co-written 24 of his 35 #1 hit singles, placing him in the elite company of
Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who ve written more than 20
songs that they ve recorded and taken to the top of the charts

Customer Reviews

It has become one of my favorite CDs of all time.
Virginia R. Marciano
It's made even more special knowing that Alan Jackson made this CD as a gift to his mother who like my father loves the old hymns.
J. K. Freedman
The songs are beautiful and he does a good job of representing and singing them very well.

When my Dad died last summer, my sister and I were looking for the old time renditions of the spirituals he grew up singing, as well as ourselves. We listened to numerous cuts on I Tunes. When we found this CD, our search ended. Alan made this CD as a Christmas gift to his mother, from what I gather, never intending to publish it. I am soo glad, for one, that he did. These are the unadorned songs, full of faith and meaning, not full of choirs and unnecessary instrumentation. It has become one of my favorite CDs of all time. I highly recommend it to people of all ages.

Its hard to find a good musician with good soul in our times, but Alan Jackson is one. This is a great CD and I enjoy it quiet often. The choice of songs/hymns are spot on.

I listened to many samples of Gospel, country and otherwise, but I decided on Mr Jackson's soft quiet old time religion sound, I did purchase both volumes. A great gift for seniors who are also looking for old fashioned gospel music Of all the country voices with Gospel albums, I did prefer these. Just personal opinion.

Alan Jackson is one of the greats in modern country music, eschewing the modern movement towards the popification of country music. He has that great, old time country sound that really makes his music a breath of fresh air, compared to so many of his contemporaries. In this 2006 album, Alan Jackson turned his considerable talents, and clear strong voice, to the great old time hymns that so many of us grew up with.

I found this to be a great album, filled with lots of very precious memories. I love all of the hymns he selected here, and I think that he did a great job of rendering them in his own country style. I highly recommend this precious album.

Outstanding performance of several favorite hymns by one of country's best singers ever. I normally only buy gospel albums by gospel artists, but Alan's renditions of these hymns was too good to pass up.

The background music (vocals, piano, Hammond B3, guitar, etc.) is excellent, too, tastefully done. If you like hymns that sound as though they are coming from the heart, buy both of Alan's "Precious Memories" albums. You won't be disappointed.
