Australia Gives Alan Jackson Lots of Love

Jackson, Alan ONSTAGE

Alan Jackson knew it was gonna be a good tour when fans sang along to every single song at the Friday night opener in Melbourne, Australia. So far, it has been an absolute Aussie A.J. lovefest for his first tour Down Under.

The Australian Associated Press writer gushed:

It’s taken two decades for American country music legend Alan Jackson to come see us in Australia but after his opening show in Melbourne the wait was worth it.

Since the opening night, he has played a huge festival Sunday and a standing-room-only show in Sydney on Monday. Alan is set to play three shows in Brisbane.

The Aussie reviewer explains Jackson’s appeal:

The 52-year-old, whose favourite TV show is The Andy Griffith Show, celebrates ordinary working rural folk who drive four-wheel drives and are faithful to their spouses. The songs are dripping in small town Americana but the laid-back Jackson gets away with it and only endears himself even more to his followers.
