Alan Jackson has a big weekend ahead of him.
The Georgia native will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Oct. 22, but Alan is getting the party started today (Oct. 20) by releasing a new song, “The Older I Get.”
Penned by Adam Wright, Hailey Whitters and Sarah Allison Turner, the tune is the first offering from Alan’s upcoming album, which is tentatively scheduled to drop in 2018. The album will be Alan’s first since 2015’s Angels and Alcohol.
“This song reflects a lot of how I feel these days,” says Alan. “It’s a good song. I really liked it, but the message was a little different when I first heard it. I thought maybe it could be a little more positive about being older and wiser and more content, so they rewrote a few things, and this is how it ended up.”
