From the venue:
Country Music Hall of Famer Alan Jackson will bring decades of hits to fans in his home state of Georgia with a concert at the award-winning State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Friday, February 14.
Jackson is a Georgia native, born and raised just 40 miles outside Atlanta in rural Newnan. He and his wife called it home until making a move to Nashville in the mid-‘80s to pursue the career that’s made him one of country music’s most prolific and celebrated performers.
Alan Jackson’s concerts find the country icon performing hits that have gained him legions of longtime fans, songs that continue to draw new crowds as new generations discover his music. Jackson’s repertoire stands the test of time; it has impacted all sorts of artists who cite Jackson as an influence. It’s these same songs – many written by Alan – that have earned him his place alongside country music’s greatest names and cemented his place in its history with membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous – enduring hits such as his debut single “Here in The Real World”…signature songs “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country”…party anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time”…and many, many more.
In addition to a special guest (to be announced), Alan’s Atlanta tour stop will showcase one of Jackson’s favorite rising stars who play at AJ’s Good Time Bar, his self-owned honky-tonk on downtown Nashville’s famed “Lower Broadway.”
Alan Jackson’s songs have gained him worldwide acclaim, from critics and fans alike. In 2020, he’ll continue his tradition of “keepin’ it country” as he brings 30 years of hits to Georgia!
