HONKY TONK HIGHWAY TOUR ROLLS THROUGH THE SUMMER AND INTO THE FALL WITH ADDED CITIES
Jackson’s Country Music Hall of Fame Induction Has Made His 2017 Tour
A Cause for Celebration With His Fans
Grammy Winning Vocalist Lee Ann Womack Continues as Special Guest
(NASHVILLE- August 2, 2017) Alan Jackson’s Honky Tonk Highway Tour became a celebration with fans in every city after it was announced that he’s a 2017 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee – now the superstar is extending that celebration through the late summer and toward year’s end with still more stops and performances, including several just-added cities. Multi-platinum singer Lee Ann Womack, who has thrilled crowds all year long, remains his special guest.
Alan Jackson’s concerts find the country icon performing hits that have gained him legions of longtime fans, songs that continue to draw new crowds as a younger generation discovers his music. Jackson’s repertoire withstands the test of time; it has impacted a field of artists who cite Jackson as an influence. It’s these same songs – many of them written by Alan – that earned him his newfound place alongside country music’s greatest names and cemented his place in its history with his new membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous, including his debut hit, “Here in The Real World”…signature songs such as “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country”…party anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time”…and many, many more.
The tour began in January with sold out stops in Oklahoma and Florida…followed by massive crowds at the Houston Rodeo and Atlanta, mere miles from his hometown…and a capacity crowd at downtown Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater early this summer. “More than 25 years after Alan Jackson released his debut album, all he has to do to hype up fans is casually step up to the microphone,” The Tennessean reported. “He did that and so much more – throughout the set, as on his albums, Jackson’s voice was unwavering and strong. His affable attitude beamed brighter than his spotlights.”
Special guest Lee Ann Womack joins Jackson on tour this year. As a Jackson duet partner of long-standing, Lee Ann has appeared on several of Alan’s albums, and the two have shared a number of stages, including the Grand Ole Opry. Lee Ann also honored Jackson at the 2014 CMT Music Awards when he received his Impact Award. On Alan’s Honky Tonk Highway Tour, fans are enjoying hits spanning Lee Ann's career to date, as well as brand new and unreleased songs.
