"Gone Country," released in 1994, speaks of singers from other genres being drawn to perform country music. "Chattahoochee," a song about youthful memory-making along the banks of the namesake river, came out in 1993 and won the CMA title "Single of the Year." "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" is a 2003 duet performed with Jimmy Buffet. It maintained a number one position on music charts for eight straight weeks. Also a number one hit in 2003, "Remember When" is a largely autobiographical song reflecting on Jackson's own life.
"Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)" was written just after the September 11, 2001 attacks and was a major hit that year. The party anthem "Good Time" was a number one hit in 2008. The accompanying music video featured an appearance by country music legend George Jones, as well as what appeared to be the world's longest line dance (the effect was achieved through creative video editing). Alan Jackson has had more than 30 number one hits on country music charts throughout his career.Learn more about Art & Literature
