Country music icon Alan Jackson who recently scores a #1 Billboard Christian album with his latest Gaither Music release Precious Memories Collection, was forced to dodge a beer can thrown by a reportedly intoxicated concertgoer. This happened on November 3 while Jackson and his band performed at the Cajundome in Lafayette, La. as part of his ongoing Honky Tonk Highway Tour.
While Jackson was in the middle of performing "Don't Rock the Jukebox," a beer came flying up from the seats near the edge of the stage. Jackson managed to dodge it as it narrowly misses hitting him in the the leg and sloshes around, landing behind him at the foot of the drum riser.
Jackson reacts like a true world class pro, his voice quavering only slightly as he dodges the can. He turns briefly to look to see what landed behind him before resuming his performance, shaking his head and smiling as he continues the show.
Country radio station KMDL 97.3 The Dawg in Lafayette reports that one fan in attendance posted to Facebook after the show, writing, "I really can't believe someone threw [their] beer at Alan Jackson. Some people have no respect for others. It's really sad!!"
