Country Music Hall of Famer Alan Jackson has announced that he will be touring extensively in 2020, and has announced the initial round of dates, with more dates to come. The new tour dates include a previously-announced appearance at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California on April 26th, as well as Alan Jackson’s first show in Nashville in 3 years at the Bridgestone Arena on August 7th.
Though we don’t have a list of openers yet, the Alan Jackson camp has confirmed that once again they will pick the openers from the crop of regular performers at AJ’s Good Time Bar on Lower Broadway in Nashville. In 2019, Alan Jackson not only toured with William Michael Morgan and Randy Houser as openers, he selected Jay Bragg, James Carothers, and Amanda Daughtry from the AJ’s Good Time Bar rotation to take out on tour, and then put a list of additional names up for the public to vote on for the remaining slots. This gave some big opportunities to up-and-coming artists.
Though Alan Jackson fans will be happy to see a new set of tour dates, we still don’t have an answer about when a new album might be coming from the Georgia native. Unfortunately, no new information has been provided on that front. Jackson released a new song “The Older I Get” in 2017 ahead of his Hall of Fame induction, but we haven’t heard anything else about new music since. His last record was Angels & Alcohol released in 2015. Alan Jackson has sold an astounding 60 million records worldwide, recorded thirty-five #1 hits, has had fifty Top 10 hits, has earned two Grammy Awards, and 16 Country Music Association Awards including Entertainer of the Year in 1995, 2002, and 2003.
Alan Jackson played a total of 17 concert dates in 2019 and has announced 18 for 2020 so far. But don’t fret if there isn’t a concert near you yet. They’re saying more dates will be coming.
