Thanks Alan, what a great show last night at the Joe Gibbs Heart to Heart fundraiser. We saw you back in October in Fairfax but the small setting last night was awesome. It reminded me of a small setting over 20 years back.... you played in Fairfax with Faith Hill ( just getting her start )and you stopped into Blackie's, a little country bar in Springfield,Va. after the show. You and Faith sang for over 30 min. I still tell that story to this day. Thanks again for a great show last night. Jeff

What a Sweet thing for Alan to do for this sweet child. It's just the way Alan is that makes him so special. I'm so sorry for Alan's recent loss & his wife's mom passed a while back also. we all lose those we Love .

I remember being Home in MS while we were waiting for my mother to go. I had the pleasure of getting a Meet and Greet with Alan. he didn't know it but I was in shock to see him. he was bigger than Life to me. I put my arm around him to have our photo taken and I felt such comfort. I was so happy but  neglected to tell him how very much I loved his Music etc. He made me feel comforted by asking me questions etc He must have known I was scared to death..It was such a Happy moment in time for me, especially  with my mother about to pass on..I will never forget the time I felt comforted by Alan Jackson & he never knew.I still miss my Mother but time has a way of healing the brokeness. To all who have lost their recent loved ones, God Bless You and know God loves You.Thanks Alan, for your Comfort.You will Remain my favorite Singer/Songwriter Forever , You are THE BEST!  Cool Jerrie(HomeTown MS)

So very sad when someone has to let go of their child,  but to know he is with Jesus is a blessing that will bring a peace like no other.  Alan your are a kind loving person who befriended a little boy and made his world shine brighter I'm sure!  You have lost your share over the last months, and yet you continue to brighten people's lives with your tour! I have Parkinson's but I did not let that stop me from standing in front of you at center stage in Pensacola on the 27th you made my night a lot brighter!  Thank you for the love you have for people that is truly from the heart!

"Gone Country" Goes #!

Twenty-two years ago Alan's hit, "Gone Country" made number 1 on the record chart(s). It is such a catchy song I thought he wrote it. Read all about it here:

Keep the good 'ole country music coming, Alan!



A Beloved Young Fan Passes

Most of us, if not all of us, fans of Alan's I'm sure remember JDub, the young boy who has cancer of whom Alan granted a wish to meet him in person by giving him and his parents a special tour of the exhibit of his country music career memorabilias at the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2015. Sadly, JDub succumbed to this terrible disease the 24th of this month. Here's a sweet article from Nash Country Daily with photos and video of Alan and JDub at he CMHOF:

Condolences, thoughts and prayers of comfort to JDub's family and friends, , , ,and Alan too,

Rest In Peace, sweet JDub,

Oh MY!!!!!!!!!!!!
 God Bless Alan and his Family. This Video is so surreal. We were there watching" Mama Ruth" , sing along
w/Alan. We were to the left of her, amazing we didn't get in this shot. "Denise" was singing along too. She looked so Pretty.I remember Alan saying "this was Mama Ruth's & his Daddy's Song."

When I saw Alan introduce Precious Memories I, Mattie was there & it was at the Ryman
God Bless You Alan & Family,
 Thanks BHR for your article about Alan's "Mama Ruth", Alan indeed had talent within his" Mama's" family.

 Strange coincidence is that My own Mother ran away & married my Dad also at 16 too! I would have died if my daughter had done that but those were very different times. also my mother's first job was in the cafeteria, where I went to school. I have "Mama Ruth's" cookbook and she and my mother made their cornbread dressing alike.

 I wish we had talent in our family, no luck here . I did sing in our Church Choir for years in MS.I also took piano lessons for three years & I still can't play piano well,,,,
 Alan Indeed has a Gift for Singing and Songwriting Thank God! So glad he used his Gift.
 God Bless Alan and All the Family, such beautiful Daughters also. I read a Quote once that reminds me of
Alan's Family values. It went "I do not care how much money you have ,I care how you lived you life", his
was a family of good Values, like mine.
We had Love, Jerrie  Cool

Alan's beloved Mama Ruth will be remembered at her funeral service on Thursday, Below is a link to an an article in this regard from The Newnan Times Herald. It's a beautifully written tribute to Mama Ruth, with a photo taken last April at her 86th birthday family celebration, while announcing her scheduled funeral service. Hope you all will be able to read it. Please let me know if you can't.

Rest In Peace, Mama Ruth.

Dear Alan:

Am sad and crying over the loss of your mother, Mama Ruth.  You can still talk to her in heaven and she will be watching you all the time now.  You were lucky to have had that wonderful mom at all.  GOD MUST HAVE NEEDED HER RIGHT NOW.  Tell her hello each day and she will watch over you and your family.
I am so sad about this. 

Love you Alan
Suzanne aka ALANFAN
