NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 15, 2014) Kubota Tractor Corporation is joining Alan Jackson's 25-year career celebration. The industry-leading tractor and equipment company has signed on as a sponsor of the country superstar’s upcoming 2015 tour. The multi-platinum selling Grammy winner, fresh off playing the first of his two sold-out Artist-In-Residence shows at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s CMA Theater, is making two special appearances this week to perform at Kubota’s Dealer Meeting in Nashville, TN when the company reveals the landmark news for the first time to their dealers who are in attendance from all over the U.S. and Canada. This is the first major sponsorship of a music superstar for Kubota Tractor Corporation.
“We are very excited to partner with Alan Jackson for his 25th Anniversary Tour,” said Buck Trawick, Kubota marketing director. “As a highly successful country superstar, and a Kubota tractor owner, himself, we believe he is an excellent fit for our brand.”
Tour dates, cities and venues for the memorable 25-city tour will be announced soon.
Jackson’s 2015 tour is an extension of the already year-long 25th anniversary celebration which kicked off this summer with the opening of his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country, which will run through March 2015. This month the multi-platinum selling Grammy winner is also playing two record-breaking sold out shows at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater making him the first simultaneous artist-in-residence and major museum exhibit subject.
Jackson will re-release his popular Christmas classics album Let It Be Christmas on October 27. The album will be re-released by ACR (Alan’s Country Records) and EMI Records Nashville and will be available at all digital retailers.
