Unlike most music genres, country music often looks to its legends for its greatest lessons. We turn to them for advice, guidance and wisdom about what they have learned in this crazy thing called life. So let’s just say that Alan Jackson’s new song and video for “The Older I Get” is quite the instruction manual for all of us these days.
The clip takes country music fans down memory lane via Alan’s career and personal life, with many pics and videos from past concerts. Performances and intimate family moments teach us all that life is short, even when you are a big, famous country music star.
“I think it’s like I’ve always heard — the older you get, the faster time goes,” Alan recently told Rare Country. “One minute, it seems like it’s been really fast. On the other hand, it seems like it’s been a long time. We’ve been through so much and done so much and just been so fortunate. It’s just hard to believe all this has happened.”
