Alan Jackson may be cutting spend time on touring schedule, but he never forget to spend time in the recording studio. Recently Alan revealed on his daughter’s podcast “In Joy Life with Mattie Jackson” that himself hopes to release new music.
“I may not have toured much, but like I said, the creative part jumps out every now and then,” the Alan Jackson said. “I’m always scribbling down ideas and thinking about melodies, and I feel like there’ll be some more music to come.”
Country Star Alan Jackson announced in September of 2021 that he has suffered from degenerative nerve condition Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease for the last one decade.
The disease which star is suffering from makes it harder for him to walk, and this new music would be Alan Jackson’s first since sharing his diagnosis.
Jackson further said touring as a singer could get repetitive, but the studio was the place where his creativity came out.
“When you make an album, or especially when you write a lot of the songs, that’s creating something,” Country Star Alan Jackson said. “It’s a challenge, so it keeps you interested a little more. If I didn’t write, I think I would’ve gotten bored just singing a long time ago.”
Alan called songwriting more fulfilling than anything.
One reason for that is, he said, “was hearing people’s stories about how they connected with his songs. He learned the lesson in a big way with this feelgood ’90s hit “Chattahoochee,” which he wrote with Jim McBride.
“It was a fun, up-tempo thing about coming to age, and I thought, ‘Well yeah, that’s a fun song, and I like it, and people in Georgia are going to like it, but nobody else in the world is gonna know what it is or care about it,'” Alan Jackson said. “But then I learned right quick that everybody has a Chattahoochee. It may be called something else, or may not be a river at all, but it just was the story, was something people could relate to in their life for wherever they were from. So, you just never know.”
