Alan Jackson is taking his 25-plus years of hits and fan-favorites on the road in the new year, as he embarks on his 2017 Honky Tonk Highway Tour. Lee Ann Womack will be the special guest on select shows.
Jackson’s Honky Tonk Highway Tour will find the country music icon “keepin’ it country” as he always has…performing hits that have gained him legions of longtime fans, as well as songs that continue to draw new crowds as a younger generation discovers his music. Jackson’s repertoire withstands the test of time; it has impacted a host of artists who cite Jackson as an influence. It’s a night a real country music when Jackson comes to town – fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous, from his debut hit, “Here in The Real World” through signature songs such as “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country”…the career-defining “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” and poignant “Remember When”… party anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time”…and many more.
Jackson’s 2017 tour will find the superstar playing arenas and amphitheaters, as well as some of the biggest annual festivals and multi-day events on the country music calendar. Special guest Lee Ann Womack joins Jackson on select dates (with several more to be announced). As a Jackson duet partner of long-standing, Lee Ann has appeared on several of Jackson’s albums, and the two have shared a number of stages, including the Grand Ole Opry and Carnegie Hall. Lee Ann also honored Jackson at the 2014 CMT Music Awards when he received his Impact Award. Fans will hear hits spanning Womack’s career to date, as well as brand new and unreleased songs.
