ALAN JACKSON GEARS UP FOR CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL
(June 1, 2016 – NASHVILLE) Country Music superstar Alan Jackson – a virtual fixture at Nashville’s annual CMA Music Festival (formerly Fan Fair) since his recording career began – is preparing a couple of very special performances for the multitudes of music lovers who’ll descend on Music City next week.
On Tuesday, June 7, he’ll treat fans to rare performance as he’s featured in the “Acme Unplugged” series at Acme Seed and Feed in the heart of Music City. This special appearance on Nashville’s Lower Broadway will find the music icon playing a Music Festival installment of the venue’s acclaimed songwriter series. Tickets are $50.00 per person, with a very limited number of VIP ticket packages available. The show is open to all ages; tickets may be purchased online at http://bit.ly/AlanAcmeUnplugged beginning Friday, June 3 at 10:00am CT. The performance will also stream live on WranglerNetwork.com, as well as on Acme Radio via AcmeRadioLive.com and the TuneIn app.
On Friday, June 10, the Grand Ole Opry member will step onto the world-renownded Opry stage, as he celebrates his 25th year as a Grand Ole Opry member. This comes on the heels of the recent milestone marking the 25th anniversary of the release of his landmark Don’t Rock the Jukebox, an album that spawned five hit singles (including four #1 hits) and to date is certified quadruple-platinum.
Jackson currently tops Billboard’s all-genre Music DVD chart with Keepin’ It Country: Live at Red Rocks, a concert DVD captured on tour at the revered Colorado concert venue in 2015. The DVD has topped the chart since its release in early May, outpacing recent offerings by Eric Clapton and Adele. Jackson’s Keepin’ It Country Tour – extended from 2015 into this year – continues this summer with performances at Ohio’s iconic Jamboree in the Hills (July 15) and the Faster Horses Festival in Michigan (July 17). More shows – available at www.alanjackson.com – follow in August and through the fall.
