Alan Jackson just gave us a reality check with one of his earlier hits YouTube

It’s undeniable — Alan Jackson’s still got it.

The Georgian, whose slated to release a concert DVD special titled “Keepin’ It Country — Live at Red Rocks,” is now giving us a taste of that performance.

Taken from his May 17, 2015, show at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo., Alan is backed by a fiddler and a slew of other acoustic players. Sitting on a stool, the white cowboy-hatted country star sings along to the waltz, “Here in the Real World.”

Needless to say, he still gives us chills.

Released in 1990, “Here in the Real World” came off of Alan’s debut album of the same name. Co-penned with Mark Irwin, the song, which speaks about the difference between real life and what goes on in the movies, rose to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Along with many years of success, Alan continued his high-swinging career in 2015 with a silver anniversary tour dubbed “Keepin’ It Country.” With it’s triumph, he’s added a handful of 2016 dates and added special guest Lauren Alaina to the show in mid-march.
