Alan Jackson has entertained his millions of fans with his fabulous mix of honky tonk and traditional country music for almost forty years now.
Jackson is a member of the Grand Ole Oprey and became a Country Music Hall of Famer in 2017 and has sold over 80 million records.
The modest musician didn’t feel worthy to be inducted into such a star-studded hall despite his incredible achievements and success to date.
Jackson’d daughter has offered a rare insight about the man she knows as her father behind the face of fame.
The 60-year-old has always been very modest about his success preferring to focus on his music rather despite his fame.
On his induction into the prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame he explains Even though I’ve done a lot, I still don’t feel quite worthy, but I feel like it’s an honor to qualify for what it requires to be in here with these great people.
“I’ve always tried to make music my first priority – not being a star, not being in the spotlight, just trying to make music that I loved.”
His 26 year old daughter Alexandria Jane Jackson knows he deserves every bit of recognition. He is a country music star to the whole world but to his middle daughter he is much different.
“I see you as: my best friend, the guy that taught me how you treat people matters more than anything else and taught me just how to stand on my own two feet,” she said.
On 15 December 1979, Jackson married his childhood sweetheart Denise Jackson. The couple have two other daughters 29-year-old Mattie Denise and 22-year-old Dani Grace as well as Ali.
The country music star credits his wife with getting his career off the ground after Denise told Glenn Campbell about her talented husband. While Denise worked as a flight attendant thats where she met the legendary American singer.
Ali concludes her touching tribute with, “You’re every daughter’s dream father. Thank you for raising us in a house filled with Jesus and music, and always making sure we knew whatever our dream was could be our reality.”
Jackson is a member of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and also boasts two Grammy awards, 16 CMA awards and 17 ACM .
His daughter’s tribute is clear he has never forgotten his duty as a dad despite his success. It’s rare we hear celebrity offspring praising their parents.
