Alan Jackson Enters Country Music Hall Of Fame

Alan Jackson Shares New Music As He Enters The Country Music Hall Of Fame

The newly-minted Hall of Famer will perform on this year’s CMA Awards telecast November 8

Alan Jackson has released new music for fans. “The Older I Get” – a first taste of what’s to come on Jackson’s next album – is his first new studio recording since 2015.

This song reflects a lot of how I feel these days,” he says of the song, written by Adam Wright, Hailey Whitters and Sarah Allison Turner. “It’s a good song; I really liked it, but the message was a little different when I first heard it. I thought maybe it could be a little more positive about being older and wiser and more content, so they rewrote a few things, and this is how it ended up.

“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,” Jackson sings in the opening lines of the song. The reflective ballad is filled with the revelations and realizations that can only come from a life well-lived, and the words and melody create an instant image of Jackson’s own place in life and country music. “The older I get / The more thankful I feel / For the life I’ve had / And all the life I’m living still.”

Jackson’s membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame is the latest in a long line of career-defining accolades that include three CMA Entertainer of the Year honors, more than 25 years of membership in the Grand Ole Opry, a 2016 Billboard ranking as one of the Top 10 Country Artists of All-Time, induction to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Heritage Award as the most-performed country songwriter-artist of ASCAP’s first 100 years.

“The Older I Get” will be featured on Jackson’s next studio album, planned for a 2018 release. The newly-minted Hall of Famer will perform on this year’s CMA Awards telecast November 8, and he’ll soon announce tour plans for the coming year.
