Alan Jackson Children | Kids

They have three daughters: Mattie Denise Selecman (born June 19, 1990), Alexandra Jane “Ali” (born August 23, 1993), and Dani Grace (born August 28, 1997). Although the couple separated for several months in 1998 due to the strains of Jackson’s career as well as his infidelity, they have since reconciled.

Their story is referenced in several of Jackson’s songs, including “She Likes It Too” and “Remember When,” based on his memories, and the fond views of everlasting love between his wife and him. Denise and their daughters appear in the latter song’s video.

Denise Jackson wrote a book that topped The New York Times Best Seller list about her life with Jackson, their relationship, their separation over his infidelity and recommitment to each other, and her commitment to Christianity.

The book, It’s All About Him: Finding the Love of My Life, was published in 2007. In May 2008 she released a Gift Book titled “The Road Home.” Jackson’s nephew, Adam Wright, is also a country music singer-songwriter. Adam and his wife, Shannon, perform together as a duo called The Wrights.

The Wrights co-wrote two songs and sang harmony vocals on Jackson’s What I Do album. Jackson is a cousin of former Major League Baseball player Brandon Moss. In June 2009, Jackson listed his 135-acre (0.55 km2) estate just outside Franklin, Tennessee, for sale, asking $38 million.

The property sold in late May 2010 for $28 million, one of the highest prices ever for a home sale in the Nashville area. In 2010, after Jackson moved his estate just outside Franklin, the singer then moved into a home in the same Nashville suburb. The singer and his wife paid $3.675 million for the estate in June 2010, but less than a year later they listed the home for $3.995 million.

Jackson maintained a close friendship with their fellow country singer, George Jones. Jones has been mentioned in songs such as “Don’t Rock the Jukebox” (Jones also appeared in the video which accompanied it) and “Murder on Music Row.” The song “Just Playin’ Possum” is dedicated to Jones and talks of how Alan only wants to lie low and play possum, possum referring to George Jones.

Jones can also be seen in the video for “Good Time.” In 2008, Jones was a surprise guest at Jackson’s “CMT Giants” ceremony, where he thanked Jackson for his friendship. He’s also close friends with George Strait, who sang “Murder on Music Row” with him. Besides his associations with big stars, Alan also maintains his connections to his roots and old friends.

From his early days of playing the guitar with his old high school friend and fellow musician David “Bird” Burgess on the Burgess family front porch, it was evident Alan was going to be Newnan’s rising star. While “Bird” Burgess has left the country music scene to pursue other avenues, the two have remained friends.

At George Jones’ funeral service, on May 2, 2013, Jackson performed one of Jones’ classics, “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” at the close of the service at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. An avid classic car collector, Jackson’s collection includes an Amphicar, a 1968 Shelby GT 500 KR Convertible, and a 1970 Chevelle SS 396, among others.

Alan Jackson The Older I Get And Lyrics

The following is the lyrics of the song “The Older I Get” by Alan Jackson:

The older I get
The more I think
You only get a minute, better live while you’re in it
‘Cause it’s gone in a blink
And the older I get
The truer it is
It’s the people you love, not the money and stuff
That makes you rich

And if they found a fountain of youth
I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth
Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet

The older I get
The fewer friends I have
But you don’t need a lot when the ones that you got
Have always got your back
And the older I get
The better I am
At knowing when to give
And when to just not give a damn

And if they found a fountain of youth
I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth
Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet
The older I get

And I don’t mind all the lines
From all the times I’ve laughed and cried
Souvenirs and little signs of the life I’ve lived

The older I get
The longer I pray
I don’t know why I guess that I
Got more to say
And the older I get
The more thankful I feel
For the life I’ve had, and all the life I’m living still

Alan Jackson Remember When

The following is the lyrics for the song “Remember When” by Alan Jackson”

Remember when I was young and so were you
And time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other’s hearts
Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet
Was the music we danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we’d never give it up
Remember when

Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin’ back, it’s just a steppin’ stone
To where we are, where we’ve been
Said we’d do it all again
Remember when

Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad
For all the life we’ve had
And we’ll remember when

Remember when
Remember when

In 1989, he was nominated for a total of six Country Music Association Awards (CMAs). He was nominated for four 1994 CMAs, including Entertainer of the Year. Jackson became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1991; he was inducted by Roy Acuff and Randy Travis.

Jackson was the most nominated artist at the 29th annual TNN/Music City News Country Awards that was broadcast on June 5 from the Grand Ole Opry House. His six nominations included best entertainer, male artist, vocal collaboration, album, single, and video (two nominations in this category).

At the 2002 CMAs, Jackson set a record for having the most nominations in a single year – ten – many rising from the song “Where Were You”. It also brought his career total up to the second number of most nominations ever, after George Strait. “Where Were You” also was nominated for a Grammy for Song of the Year.

The song was also subsequently parodied in the South Park episode “A Ladder To Heaven”. At the 2003 Academy of Country Music Awards, Jackson won Album of the Year for Drive and Video of the Year for the video to “Drive (For Daddy Gene).”

In 2004, a five-mile (8 km) stretch of Interstate 85 through Jackson’s hometown of Newnan has renamed the “Alan Jackson Highway” in the singer’s honor. After learning of the honor, he stated “[Newnan] was a great place to grow up. I’m not sure I’m quite qualified for the main highway. Maybe they should’ve picked a dirt road or something.”
