After Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson was the most popular male country singer of the ’90s. An heir to the new traditionalist movement of the ’80s, Jackson’s approach was rooted in classic honky tonk yet remained comfortably within the contemporary mainstream. Jackson’s hallmark was consistency — he wrote many of his own hits, and his way with a hook was part of the reason he never really hit a commercial dry spell, even into the new millennium. He also projected a modest, wholesome, down-to-earth image that made him one of the best-liked stars of his era, even apart from his music. The total package resulted in an astounding 20 number one singles and 20 more Top Ten hits, all in the first 12 years of his career.

Jackson’s debut album, Here in the Real World, was issued in 1990 and became a platinum-selling hit on the strength of four Top Five hits: the title cut, “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Wanted,” and the first of many chart-toppers, “I’d Love You All Over Again.” He shot to full-fledged superstardom with the follow-up, 1991’s Don’t Rock the Jukebox, whose title track was an inescapable number one smash that year. The record produced three more number ones (“Someday,” “Dallas,” “Love’s Got a Hold on You”) and also contained one of Jackson’s signature songs, the Top Five “Midnight in Montgomery,” which told the story of a visit to Hank Williams’ grave. Also in 1991, Jackson co-wrote several songs with Randy Travis for Travis’ High Lonesome album. With 1992’s A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ‘Bout Love), Jackson took his place as not only one of the most popular stars of his time, but also one of the best. The number one smash “Chattahoochee” became another signature tune, and Jackson also topped the charts with “She’s Got the Rhythm (And I Got the Blues),” while scoring three more Top Five hits from the album — which became his first to top the country LP charts.

Jackson paid tribute to his favorite country singers of the past on the easygoing 1999 covers album Under the Influence, which featured material by Jones, Merle Haggard, Charley Pride, Jimmy Buffett, Hank Williams, Jr., Don Williams (the chart-topping “It Must Be Love”), and Jim Ed Brown (the Top Ten “Pop a Top”), among others. Although Under the Influence just missed hitting number one, 2000’s When Somebody Loves You returned Jackson to the top of the album charts and gave him another number one in “Where I Come From.” That year, he also teamed up with George Strait for the duet “Murder on Music Row,” a strident defense of traditional country in the face of a new wave of crossover stars.

The year 2001 brought an enormous hit in “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” a poignant attempt to make sense of the aftermath of September 11; rush-released after an awards show premiere, the song rocketed to the top of the country charts and also became his first single to crack the pop Top 30. It was followed by the full-length Drive in 2002, which spawned another number one in “Drive (For Daddy Gene),” a tribute to Jackson’s late father. The album was Jackson’s seventh to top the country charts, and it also became his first to top the pop charts. His second greatest-hits collection appeared in 2003 and featured the crossover hit “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” a duet with Jimmy Buffett. A year later the well-received What I Do proved to be the purest country album from Jackson in years. Precious Memories, released in 2006, was a collection of 15 hymns originally recorded as a Christmas gift for his mother. Later that same year, Jackson released Like Red on a Rose, a mellow Alison Krauss production. Live at Texas Stadium, a concert set with George Strait and Jimmy Buffett, followed in 2007. A new studio effort, Good Time, appeared in 2008, followed by another studio outing, Freight Train, in 2010. Jackson left Arista Records Nashville after two decades to sign a distribution deal with EMI Records for his new label, Alan’s Country Records (ACR). Jackson’s 17th studio album, Thirty Miles West, appeared on ACR under the new deal in 2012. Although the album generated no major hit singles — “Long Way to Go” topped out at 24, “So You Don’t Have to Love Me Anymore” at 25 — the album debuted at number one on the Billboard country charts and number two on the Billboard 200. Early in 2013, Jackson released his second album for ACR: a sequel to his spiritual album from 2006 called Precious Memories, Vol. 2. Later that same year, Jackson released his first-ever bluegrass album, aptly titled The Bluegrass Album.
