Not only is Alan Jackson one of America’s greatest country music treasures, but he’s also a loving father and devoted husband! After each show, tour or interview, Alan returns home to the family he cares about and makes sure they know how much they mean to him.
This sense of family and support was instilled in each of Alan’s three daughters – and one decided to honor her father in a recent tear-jerking post….
Alan was the recipient of countless Grammy, Academy, Country Music and Billboard awards – and despite his overwhelming success, he’s managed to stay grounded and focus on what’s important.
Even when it comes to the music he produces, Alan knows it’s about the content, not the fame! He spoke with Rolling Stone before his Country Music Hall of Fame induction about his drive to stay true to his fans, family and idols.
“Even though I’ve done a lot, I still don’t feel quite worthy, but I feel like it’s an honor to qualify for what it requires to be in here with these great people.
I’ve always tried to make music the first priority – not being a star, not being in the spotlight, just trying to make music that I loved, that the fans like, and not compromise that to fit into something else.”
Through all of the good days and trying times, Alan’s family has stuck by his side. He’s been the anchor in the sometimes-turbulent sea of the music industry and media attention.
That’s why it was so refreshing when Alan’s middle daughter Ali posted a heartfelt note about exactly what her father meant to their family. Instead of gossip or drama, the Jackson girl stayed true to the way she was raised.
Country Rebel shared the post that’s going viral:
“The world sees you as follows: a great musician, an impressive songwriter and a talented vocalist. I see you as: my best friend, the guy that taught me that how you treat people matters more than anything else and taught me just how to stand on my own two feet.
You’re every daughter’s dream father. Thank you for raising us in a house filled with Jesus and music, and always making sure we knew whatever our dream was could be our reality.”
Ali’s sweet words shine a light into the Jackson household and show us all what a great man Alan truly is.
Listen to Alan’s song dedicated to his high school sweetheart and wife of 37 years, Denise once again proving what a loving family man he is!
Despite all of the fame, fortune and temptations, Alan’s remained faithful to his wife and daughters. We need more men like him in the world!
