Alan Jackson Performs Surpise Concert, Makes Announcement At Hall Of Fame

CREATED Jun 5, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country legend Alan Jackson has been a busy man over the last couple of days, surprising fans with an concert at a downtown Nashville honky tonk on Wednesday night and then made a big announcement at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Thursday morning.

Jackson was accompanied by Universal Music Group Nashville label chief Mike Dungan, who described the singer-songwriter as "uncompromising" and "true to his art." Normally a man of few words, Alan talked a bit about the upcoming events and shared stories of moving to Music City with wife Denise and how his life has changed through the years with all the success he's enjoyed.

An exhibit featuring memorabilia from Jackson's career will open at the museum on August 29. He will also be the museum's Artist-in-Residence, performing special shows on October 8 and 29.

Jackson also announced that he will go on a 25th anniversary tour in 2015. Details about that were expected to be announced in the near future. 

Meanwhile, Jackson gave fans a surprise concert at the Stage on Broadway in downtown Nashville following the CMT Awards Wednesday night. He even brought up special guests to help him perform, including Leann Womack on “Golden Ring,” Kacey Musgraves on “Livin’ On Love,” and Easton Corbin on “Where I Come From.”

At the awards show, Jackson was honored with the first-ever CMT Impact Award for his 25 years of music videos.

Jackson has had more than 60 singles on the charts and has released 55 music videos to date.
