Alan Jackson has been entertaining millions of fans with his beautiful blend of honky tonk and classic country music for almost four decades.
He has sold over 80 million recordings, is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2017.
Considering his enormous accomplishments and fame, the humble celebrity did not consider himself deserving of induction into such a star-studded hall.
Now, his daughter has shared a rare glimpse into the Alan Jackson she knows behind the scenes.
Considering his meteoric ascent to popularity, the 64-year-old has always been humble about his accomplishments, choosing to concentrate on his music instead of his celebrity.
Even though he’s done a lot, he still doesn’t feel quite deserving, but he feels like it’s a privilege to qualify for what it takes to be in here with these wonderful folks, he told Rolling Stone of his induction into the renowned Country Music Hall of Fame.
He constantly attempted to make music his first goal – not to be a star, not to be in the spotlight, simply to produce music that he liked.
However one person understands he merits all of the attention: his 26-year-old daughter Alexandria Jane Jackson, also known as Ali.
To the rest of the world, he is a country music superstar, but to his middle daughter, he is something else entirely.
She regarded him as her closest friend, the man who showed her that how he treats others is more important than anything else, and who taught her how to stand on her own two feet, she explained.
On December 15, 1979, Jackson married his childhood sweetheart, Denise Jackson. In addition to Ali, the couple has two additional children, Mattie Denise, 32, and Dani Grace, 25.
The country music artist attributes his success to his wife, Denise, who notified Glenn Campbell about her brilliant husband. While working as a flight attendant, Denise met the famed American singer.
He’s every daughter’s ideal father, Ali closes her moving homage. Thank you for raising them in a home filled with Jesus and music, and for making them believe that whatever their dreams were, they could become a reality.
Jackson is also a member of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
His daughter’s dedication shows that, regardless of his fame, he has never forgotten his role as a father. It’s not often that famous children praise their parents.
