It is no lie that Alan Jackson is a country music genius. Born in Newnan, Georgia, this country singer has had success over the years. Like a lot of country stars, Jackson began singing early in life in the church choir and listened to mostly gospel music. He later moved to Tennessee to pursue an active career in music, and in 1983 he wrote his first song. His first album was an independent album titled 'New Traditional'. Throughout his career he has went on to sell over fifty million albums worldwide.
After the 9/11 attacks Jackson wrote the hit song 'Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning'. This song reached millions of listeners and touched the hearts of all who heard it. It was one of many tribute songs to the tragedy that struck the United States. The song caused Jackson to get mainstream recognition and caused his website to go down because so many people were requesting it. Jackson stated that the song just came to him and there was no real intention to record the song, but after the song was so widely requested following the 2001 CMA's, the song soon became a single, and earned him a Grammy Nomination in 2002.
The country music star has had several prestigious award nominations including a Grammy Nomination. In 2002 Jackson set the record for total number of nominations in a single year at the CMA's by earning ten, most of which came from the same single 'Where Were You'. In 1991 Jackson became a member of the Grand Ole Opry, a high honor in country music. Randy Travis and Roy Acuff were the performers who inducted him.
