Twenty five years ago, Alan Jackson burst onto the music scene with "Blue Blooded Woman." Then he has gone to chart with twenty-six Number One hits. Of these, two have been listed by Billboard as the Number One song of the year on the Billboard Year-End charts: "Don't Rock the Jukebox" in 1991 and "Chattahoochee" in 1993. His longest-lasting Number One country hit and biggest pop hit is "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere", a duet with Jimmy Buffett, which spent eight non-consecutive weeks at Number One in 2003 and peaked at number 17 on the pop charts.
"You know, I used to think if you could have a hit or two and your career lasts three or four years, you're very lucky. I never thought I'd have a career that lasts 25 years and is still goin' - I didn't imagine all this could happen," Jackson says of the honor. "I hope my fans are enjoying the exhibit, and I hope they'll enjoy these two special shows we're goin' to do for 'em."
In celebrating this milestone, Alan Jackson together with EMI Records will be re-releasing his 2002's "Let It Be Christmas." Originally released under the now dysfunction Arista Nashville Records, the album peaked at #27 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and at #6 on the Top Country Albums. In January 2003, Let It Be Christmas was certified Gold by the RIAA. Though there will be no new tracks on the re-release project, it will feature a new packaging look.
