September 30, 2013 – Alan Jackson: True Blue

Alan Jackson goes back to his early roots with his latest work, The Bluegrass Album, which pays homage to one of his favorite musical styles.

In this exclusive CW interview, Alan talks about the album and his love for bluegrass.

“It’s really about the last authentic music,” Alan says. “It’s still the rootsy stuff and that’s one reason why I’ve always liked it.”

Alan wrote several songs for the project and also covers The Dillards’ “There Is a Time” and the classic Bill Monroe tune “Blue Moon of Kentucky.”
