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 ...

I am by no means the biggest fan of country music, but when people ask me who my favorite female and male singers are in this industry I quickly respond by saying Dolly Parton and Alan Jackson. Both have had long distinguished careers and I never tire of their music. I also own everything the two have ever put out.

From the moment I saw Alan Jackson opening for Randy Travis in 1991 I knew he was destined to be one of the greatest singers in music history and his record sales, number of awards and his consistent chart toppers prove all that. His latest CD, "Thirty Miles Out", is simply one of his best.

In 2012 Alan Jackson found his life at a crossroads: his children were growing fast (his eldest daughter graduated college), his wife battled cancer and he left his recording home of Arista Records because he felt the label wasn't promoting him like they should. So, like Dolly, he started his own record company named ARC (Alan's Record Company). The result is this, his 17th studio record.

Featuring 13 tracks one of my favorites is the second single released to radio called "You Don't Have To Love Me Anymore". Other highlights here include "Long Way to Go" (the first single which went to #24), "Her Life's A Song", "Everything but The Wings" and "Look Her in the Eye and Lie", the last 3 composed by Alan. The best track is the finale, "When I Saw Her Leaving", a song Alan wrote for his wife while she battled cancer, which is probably his most personal composition of his career.

There is also a duet with Zac Brown called "Dixie Highway" that many will enjoy.

Not many can say they write and sing the way Alan does as there is simply no other like him. A great man, a great talent and simply a legend. Welcome back Alan!

On the very first week of release "Thirsty Miles West" debut at #1 on the Country Billboard Charts signalling the album's initial success.

Being that Alan Jackson is my favorite artist of all time in any genre, I am a little bias when a release of his comes out because I believe I will automatically like it (for readers looking for an unbias review, don't read this lol). This album as a whole is just a genuine piece of work. It isn't just Alan that makes it great, it's also his band the Strayhorns that contribute so much to his music. Being an artist that primarily writes his own songs, ironically for this album, the best tracks in my opinion aren't written by him. Track by track each song stands on its own:
1. Gonna Come Back As a Country Song: Great opening tune! This was not written by him but it would be a great future single. "When the good Lord calls me home, I'm gonna come back as a country song" classic.

2. Your Go Your Way: Great song, not written by Alan, typical song about a break up where the man is saying basically "you go your way and I'll go crazy".

3. Everything But The Wings: Wonderful ballad written by Alan showcasing his great song writing and voice. Great one to slow dance to I am sure. One of those that lyrically has been done a million times but Alan makes it different and new somehow.

4. Talk Is Cheap: My favorite tune on the album, not written by Alan. I couldn't wait for this album simply for this song. Just hits me all around, lyrically, musically. Great message "talk is cheap and time is flyin". Basically, save the talk, just love the one you're with. I'm at work typing this and I wanna hear that song now, that's how good it is!

5. So You Don't Have To Love Me Anymore: The first single not written by Alan but a very stand out song. It didn't hit me very hard but people that I've spoken to who aren't big AJ fans love it.

Prime Cuts: When I Saw You Leaving, Everything But the Wings, She Don't Get High

Though the album may be entitled "Thirty Miles West," Alan Jackson hasn't moved far from ground zero. This new release, his first for ACR Records and EMI, is still a solid country awash with unadorned honky tonk, stone cold country ballads and eased with Jackson's ever adoring southern twang. Other than his detour to his late-night saloon CD of "Like Red on a Rose," Jackson has always been the reliable icon of unadulterated country par excellence. Teaming with his long time producer Keith Stegall, Alan Jackson has again wilfully ignored the haggles of modern bombastic rock to release what we have always loved about him. The backings are delightfully rustic with a preponderance of fiddles, steel, guitars and piano. They are never intrusive but yet so engaging complimentary drawing out Jackson's never aging vocals to a glorious shine. However, this time Jackson has only penned 5 out of the 13 songs with the remaining coming from his nephew Adam Wright, his hero Guy Clark and some of Nashville's most sort after scribes such as Terry McBride, Al Anderson, Shawn Camp and Chris Stapleton. Yet, if truth be told, the Alan Jackson compositions are still a shoulder above the swath of material coming from other pens.

The obvious highlight of this record has to be Jackson's self-penned "Everything But the Wings." Pouring rain, stars, halos, angels and a litany of everything Hallmark would kill for "Everything But the Wings" soaks with a deep romantic delight. Coupled with Jackson's intimate and warm vocals, this is one of the songs that will seep right into your marrow and never lets you go. Lyrically falling into the other end of romance is the Vern Gosdin-stone cold esque "She Don't Get High.
