Full Answer

Jackon released "Chattahoochee" in 1993 on his album entitled "A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ‘Bout Love)." The song is his third single on the album and is an upbeat tune about reminiscing on good times and coming-of-age moments. The lyrics "way down yonder on the Chattahoochee" repeat several times throughout the song, which Jackson co-wrote with Jim McBride.

"It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere" is a collaboration between Jackson and Jimmy Buffett that appears on the 2003 album "Alan Jackson Greatest Hits Volume II." Jackson and Buffett received great notoriety for the song, which rose to the number one position on the country music charts and won a Country Music Association Award in the category of Vocal Event of the Year.

"Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" also appears on "Alan Jackson Greatest Hits Volume II," in addition to appearing on the 2002 album "Drive." Jackson wrote the song in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States. In the song, the singer describes himself as someone who is "not a real political man" and only a "singer of simpler songs."
