“REMEMBER WHEN” – Alan Jackson
Today’s country music has changed so drastically from its original roots. It’s now a hybrid of pop, rock, hip hop, and yes, even a little country. Sales are up but there is still a lot of love for traditional country out there and Alan Jackson is keeping the spirit alive. It’s more than wearing a cowboy hat or singing about the South, Alan’s heartfelt lyrics and non-assuming style are a throwback to the artists like George Strait who weren’t afraid to feature a steel guitar solo on their single. Back in the early 2000s, Alan Jackson took us on a personal journey as he reflected on his life and reminded us what true country roots sound like with his single, “Remember When”. When the song was debuted at the Grand Ole Opry, the audience was mesmerized by his unforgettable live performance. Compare that to the accompanying music video that feels like we’re peeking into Alan’s personal diary. From Alan’s slow dance with his wife, home movies of their engagement, pictures of his kids growing up, everyone can relate to this story. We know over the years, Alan’s marriage saw rough times but that’s reality and this beautiful song demonstrated things can work out if you’re willing to work for it. Alan Jackson’s song became the second biggest hit of the year for 2004, but what we will truly “remember when” is the legacy of one of the most touching songs in Alan Jackson’s career.
