Over the past year, the anticipation for The 50th Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, has continued to grow with each passing day.
Yet, we didn’t get full goose bumps until the moment Alan Jackson opened his mouth during rehearsals for the show and revealed the one-of-a-kind collaboration he will be doing that will sure have country fans talking for years to come.
“The performance I’m doing with George Strait is this thing together of two different songs including ‘Remember When’ and the ‘Troubadour’ song,” explained Alan. “We are doing little pieces of it and then they are going to supposedly put a bunch of video stuff behind of the history of country music that kind of goes with these song a little bit, so it’s going to be pretty cool.”
The duet is sure to conclude a great week for Alan, who released his “Precious Memories Collection,” a two-disc album exclusively sold at Walmart, on Oct. 28. The album features two brand-new songs, including “It’s All About Him” and “That’s The Way,” both inspired in part by Alan’s wife, Denise.
“Inspired by Denise’s strength and ability [in writing her book], I sat down and wrote a song of the same title hoping to add musically to an already uplifting story,” Alan said in a press release about the song “It’s All About Him.”
