There are certain people in music that go above and beyond the call that a musician and artist generally goes. This artist in particular has showed us all what it takes to become a legend not only in Country Music, but in every genre of music that exists. He has crafted the art of being a honest and vulnerable songwriter, all while performing music that everyone can relate to. Obviously we are talking about Alan Jackson!
