NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 24, 2012) Country music superstar Alan Jackson performed at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo last night for the 15th time in his career but never to a larger crowd in that venue. Rodeo officials have said that Jackson broke the all-time attendance record since the rodeo’s inception in 1950, with nearly 17,000 in attendance.
“What a great partnership, rodeo and country music. Our fans showed how much they support the great country artist Alan Jackson last night with a record attendance in the AT&T Center,” said Pam Rew, Assistant Executive Director San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.
"The San Antonio Rodeo has welcomed me for a lot of years and it's one of my favorite places to play. The rodeo and folks in Texas have always been good to me and I want to thank the fans for coming out to see us all these years,” says Jackson.
“….Alan Jackson did what he’s known for — he delivered the goods, the honest goods, strong country songs sung from the heart.” San Antonio Express-News
