Watch this rare clip of George Jones and Alan Jackson sharing the Opry stage

It feels like yesterday, but it was fifteen years ago. It feels like George Jones is still with us, but he passed away two years ago. And it feels like an eternity since we heard new music from country superstar Alan Jackson, but it’s only been three years.

Thankfully, the wait is finally over.

Jackson has announced that his first studio album in three years, “Angels and Alcohol,” will be released July 17, much to the delight of his countless fans who have been craving new music. The Georgia boy has 23 albums under his belt, but this new album might be one of his most anticipated yet. Working alongside longtime collaborator and producer Keith Stegall, Jackson released the track listing for the new album on April 9, it includes tracks with titles such as “When God Paints,” “Mexico, Tequila and Me” and “Jim and Jack and Hank.”

One of the all time best selling vocalists of all time, Jackson is currently on the road with his “25th Anniversary Keepin’ It Country Tour” and celebrating the continued success of his Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit “Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country,” which has been extended through June 21 due to popular demand.
