Alan Jackson, the 64-year-old country music legend, has captivated fans for over four decades with his traditional country and honky-tonk tunes, selling over 80 million records. His journey has been marked by resilience, especially after revealing a diagnosis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a degenerative nerve disorder, and grieving the loss of his son-in-law, Ben Selecman, a promising Assistant District Attorney.
Despite these hardships, Jackson has poured his emotions into his music, with albums like “Angels & Alcohol” (2015) and “Where Have You Gone” (2021) reflecting his personal trials. His daughter, Mattie, also found strength in her faith and collaborated with him on the song “Racing the Dark,” a tribute to overcoming pain.
Mattie co-founded NaSHEville, empowering women in Music City, and wrote “Lemons on Friday,” a memoir about her journey through grief and healing. Alan and his wife, Denise, contribute a heartfelt introduction, sharing their own healing experiences.


Despite his health challenges, Alan remains committed to his music. We extend our prayers and support to him and his family, grateful for the joy his music continues to bring.
