About CMT Giants: Alan Jackson

  1. CMT honors the extraordinary life and music of the legendary Alan Jackson in this 90-minute special. The tribute features performances by superstars George Strait, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride.

    Over the course of his career, Jackson has become one of country music's most respected and honored artists with 16 gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums leading up to the debut at No.1 this past March of Good Time. He has sold more than 50 million albums and has more than 100 major industry awards to his credit. He is a three-time Country Music Association entertainer of the year and the most-nominated artist in CMA history. A prolific songwriter, Jackson penned 23 of his 33 No. 1 singles, including his Grammy-winning best country song, "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)."

    A native of small-town Newnan, Ga., Jackson was the first artist signed to the fledgling Arista Nashville record label in 1989. With the release the following year of his debut album, Here in the Real World, his songs immediately connected with fans, leading to four No. 1 singles from that record alone. Since 1991, Jackson has had 21 No. 1 videos on CMT's Top 20 Countdown including classics such as "Don't Rock the Jukebox," "Chattahoochee," "Pop a Top" and "It's Five O'clock Somewhere" with Jimmy Buffett. In 2002, Jackson won the CMT Music Award for video of the year with his hit "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)."

    Jackson's most recent collection, Good Time, became the fourth album of his career to debut simultaneously at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums and all-genre Billboard 200 sales charts. The 17-song release has netted two No.1 hits, the title track and "Small Town Southern Man," and also marked a career first for Jackson as the only time he has been the sole writer of all the songs on his album
