On February 27, 1990, country superstar Alan Jackson released his landmark debut album Here In The Real World. The album, certified Double Platinum by the RIAA for sales of over two million, spawned four no. 1 hits including his trademark self-penned hit of same name, “Here In The Real World,” as well as his self-penned hits “Wanted,” “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” and “I’d Love You All Over Again.”
Jackson, currently on his 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR, will be celebrating the anniversary with his fans at the Nokia Theatre LA LIVE in Los Angeles, CA on the actual anniversary date this week of Friday, February 27, 2015. Fans in attendance will be receiving a special limited edition commemorative poster celebrating Here In The Real World’s 25th anniversary.
Since the release of Here In The Real World, Jackson has released 22 albums including two Christmas albums, two gospel albums and three Greatest Hits collections. The man from rural Newnan, GA, who claims he is just a “singer of simple songs,” has gone on to sell nearly 60 million albums worldwide and ranks as one of the 10 best-selling vocalists of all-time in all genres. He has released more than 60 singles—registering 50 Top Ten hits and 35 #1s (including 26 Billboard #1s). He has earned more than 150 music industry awards—including 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, a pair of Grammys and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards. Jackson received the first-ever ASCAP Heritage Award in 2014 having earned the title of most performed country music songwriter-artist of ASCAP’s first 100 years. He is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.
Alan Jackson is one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music. He is in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who’ve written more than 20 songs that they’ve recorded and taken to the top of the charts. Jackson is one of the best-selling artists since the inception of SoundScan, ranking alongside the likes of Eminem and Metallica.
Alan Jackson’s 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR, sponsored by Kubota Tractor Corporation, continues to be a memorable celebration for his longtime fans as well as legions of new fans who are discovering his music through the many songs that have withstood the test of time and influenced many new artists of today like the tour’s special guests Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous – from his massive debut hit, “Here In The Real World” to “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” the summertime party-anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” and many, many more.

It was recently reported that America had one of it’s hottest years in its history, Now with all the snow and ice it seems that 2015 may be its coldest perhaps? Who knows but time will tell and the notes will be written into the history books before 2016 even knocks on out-door.
“Between the ice storms, snow , record low temps, our dog Skippy is sinking into snow, and trying to find a place to do his thing. Yesterday throughout the evening we got about 5 inches on top of other snow. This morning more snow….ugh. I am layering my clothes daily and using anything when I go out to cover up with heavy coat, scarf, hood, snow boots, gloves”. Rhonnie Scheuerman
Rhonnie and Bob Scheuerman who live in Nashville sent us a short Snow update above, this morning and we thought as we don’t all live in Nashville like myself, and are always dreaming of being there here is a glimpse of what it looks like right now in Music City USA, Nashville Tennessee.
“We see many of our family & friends in different states are also getting hit hard too. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Eager for spring” Rhonnie
I spoke to Keith Bradford a few days ago and joking said to him, ‘I suppose you wont be cutting the grass today” his answer was,
“It is snowing so hard right now the visibility is less than 10 feet. Very Rough” Keith Bradford Nashville Broadcasting Radio Network and KMA Studios
The snow and ice have been such a problem in Nashville that some music shows have been cancelled due to the weather. We hope that you are not a tourist in Nashville right now spending a once in a lifetime holiday with the family to Nashville, if so I am sure you are really feeling pretty disappointed.

In the New Testament, Lord is the most frequently used title for Jesus Christ. Although we rarely use this term in our daily lives, we are all quite familiar with another word: boss. That is basically what Lord means—one possessing authority, power, and control. The Word of God describes Jesus as the head of the church, the ruler over all creation, and the Lord of lords and King of kings (Col. 1:15-18; Rev. 3:14; 17:14).
The realm of Christ’s reign covers everything that happens in heaven and on the earth. No one—not even those who deny His existence—can be free of His rule or outside His sphere of authority. Although Satan tries to convince us that liberty is found in doing what we want, true freedom is acquired only through submission to Christ’s loving lordship.
Even death cannot release anyone from the authority of God’s Son. He is Lord of both the living and the dead. All people must decide to either yield or rebel against Him, but they have the opportunity to make this choice only while they are still living. After death, they will acknowledge Christ’s lordship through accountability to Him. If we have not bowed the knee to Jesus in life, we will be forced to bend it in the judgment.
Have you submitted to Christ’s rule over your life? His authority causes anger or fear in individuals who have not yet yielded to Him, but those who have experienced His lovingkindness, trusted in His goodness, and surrendered to His authority take comfort in knowing Him as the Lord of their lives.
