Alan Jackson gets personal on CMT

Surrounded by a small group of fans and backed by his band the Strayhorns, superstar Alan Jackson performs and opens up about his music and the inspiration behind it in a new episode of INVITATION ONLY, premiering Saturday, March 1 at 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT, on CMT. In the second installment of the new CMT performance series, Jackson performs his biggest hits, along with songs from his new album Good Time, and takes personal questions from the audience.
Jackson’s exclusive INVITATION ONLY performance includes such well-known staples as “Chattahoochee” and “Don’t Rock the Jukebox,” along with self-penned tracks “Small Town Southern Man” and “Sissy’s Song” from his forthcoming album, Good Time. He also shares candid stories about growing up in Georgia, how he met his wife Denise and the inspirations behind his music. INVITATION ONLY encores Sunday, March 2 at 10:00-11:00 a.m. and again at 1:30-2:30 p.m., ET/PT, on CMT.
A favorite of critics and fans alike, Alan Jackson is one of the most compelling performers/songwriters in country music. He has sold more than 49 million albums, has penned 21 of his 31 No. 1 singles, and is the most nominated artist in CMA history. The three-time CMA Entertainer of the Year topped the album charts not once, but twice, in 2006, with the success of Precious Memories and Like Red on a Rose. Jackson reunited with longtime producer Keith Stegall for his new Arista Nashville album Good Time, which hits stores on March 4, and features 17 tracks penned by Jackson.
