His tour will continue on. Longtime country singer Alan Jackson is extending his 25th Anniversary Keepin' It Country tour so his fans will be able to enjoy his music a little longer. He started touring this summer but will be keeping on playing his songs for his fans. One stop he will be making will be at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, CA on Feb. 27, 2015. Joining him on this tour will be brand new country singer Jon Pardi and songwriter-turned-singer, Brandy Clark. The tour is sponsored by Kubota Tractor Corporation
If you love pure country music, then this is certainly the concert to be at. Jackson is known for his classic country tunes and his record-breaking shows. Some of his more well-known songs include “Here In The Real World,” “Gone Country,” and “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.” Those tunes and more will be performed during this exciting tour.
His two opening acts feature both a talented new artist in the country music genre and a well-known songwriter among country music who decided to start singing her own songs. Jon Pardi is high energy and will be singing songs from his debut album, Write You a Song. Brandy Clark has written songs for big artists such as Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry. She is now touring with one of the biggest names in country music.
Alan Jackson was just recently awarded the very first ASCAP Heritage Award in which he earned by being the most performed country music songwriter-artist of ASCAP’s first 100 years. It was quite an honor for the country superstar as he got a little emotional listening to all of the kind and inspirational words by some of his best supporters who made sure that his career in country music became a reality.
“I don’t even know what to say. I’m just an old country boy that’s had a lot of blessings," Jackson said during an interview at the awards. “Like I've said before, I’m just a singer of simple songs and came [to Nashville] to sing country songs and songwriting means more to me than anything.”
The 56-year-old country boy has had plenty of experience in the music business and he is sure to have plenty of advice for up and coming younger musicians. The one piece of advice that he gave while he was accepting his award that night was for them to remember that it is all about the music and not as much about how high you are on the charts. He has done quite well with this concept in his own career.
Get ready for 25 years of Alan Jackson's country roots in music. You night even get a taste of some new music from an upcoming album he is working on. Tickets for his Keepin' It Country tour will go on sale Friday, Nov. 7 at 10 a.m.
