Alan Jackson: Gabba Gabba Honky Tonk

Alan Jackson will play legendary New York punk palace CBGB’s on Feb. 6, immediately after he tapes The Late Show With David Letterman. CBGB’s stands for “Country, Bluegrass, Blues.” Originally, owner Hilly Kristal planned to feature roots music at the club, but his plans changed and instead the venue nurtured seminal punk acts such as the Ramones, Television and Blondie. Patrons will pay $20 to hear Jackson play his country tunes in alien territory. He’ll also appear Feb. 7 on The Rosie O’Donnell Show. Interestingly, Jackson does not plan to perform “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” on his New York media stops. He’ll do “When Love Comes Around” on Letterman and “Work In Progress” on Rosie. Both songs are from his new No. 1 album, Drive. 02/01/02
