Alan Jackson’s New Album – Where Have You Gone – Available May 14th!

Alan Jackson announced that his next album, Where Have You Gone, will arrive for fans on May 14th!

Where Have You Gone features 21 songs, including the title track. Alan says that the music on this album is a “little harder country” than he’s done before.

Alan shares a story of listening to the songs on Where Have You Gone and getting an unexpected result, “it’s funny, I was driving and listening to the final mixes Keith Stegall (Alan’s longtime producer) sent me, and I started to tear up. I was surprised to get so overly emotional, but I just love this kind of music.”

Alan wrote 15 of the 21 tracks, and says, “When I write, I visualize back home and growing up, real country songs are life and love and heartache, drinking and Mama and having a good time…but it’s the sounds of the instruments, too. The steel and acoustic guitar, the fiddle – those things have a sound and a tone…and getting that right, the way those things make you feel, that’s country, too.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
