Alan Jackson Records National Anthem for Hometown Celebration

Alan Jackson has recorded the national anthem for the Fourth of July celebration in his hometown of Newnan, Ga. His recorded version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” will have its world debut at the event. Jackson’s sister, Newnan resident Cathy Wright, was approached by the local Rotary Club to ask Jackson about recording the song. Jackson’s next tour date is scheduled for July 16 at Jamboree in the Hills in St. Clairesville, Ohio. Jackson and his wife, Denise, both grew up in Newnan.
